Greetings fellow SAL Members. It is getting to be the time of year to report your activities for the Education Homeless and Employment activities. The final report needs to be turned into Department by Dec 11 2017. Any activities your Squadron does to promote the initiatives is re-portable. Activity you do for Veterans Haven North, South, or any County homeless veterans shelter you support please include. Stand Downs, Job Fairs, that you volunteered for, or contributed money to should be included.
New Jersey is a leader in this field but we are not capturing the activities of the NJ SAL. Even though you report this activity on your yearly Consolidated Report, there are separate awards given for these activities if reported. They are also reported on the calander year not the fiscal year. Please see the following link for forms and further information.
