What We Do

Our Mission


Our local communities have many Veteran Service Organizations that help our Veterans with Education, Housing, Therapy, and Finances.  The mission of Save-A-Joe, Inc. is to partner with our local small businesses, Corporate Sponsors and our community members to raise money to assist these Veteran Service Organizations.  We raise funds by hosting events with you, our amazing supporters. And you can rest assured that 100% of all funds that you raise will be donated to help fight Veteran Homelessness, to provide assistance to our Disabled Veterans, and to assist our Veterans living in VA Homes in our local communities.

How we Do it

We host events for you to attend and have a great time while raising money for an incredible cause.
Our Veterans

Bowling for Veterans

Our original event.
First hosted in 2013 as a fun fundraiser with some local friends and businesses to raise money for Veterans in need of help. Back then we chose the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans as our beneficiary and the funds raised at this event have continued to support this great local non-profit ever since.

Save-A-Joe Pub Crawl

Every year we host a Pub Crawl as one of our Annual Events as another way to give our supporters and advocates a super fun way to help us raise money. What a great way to have fun, do good, and to be part of something so awesome!

Why we Do it!

We do this because we would be nowhere without our Veterans. They served so that we might enjoy the wonderful opportunities and lives that we have here in the great US of A. 

Regular Events

We continually host events to make it fun for you, and to bring in funds for our Veterans.

Purpose Driven

We are dedicated to our cause and would love you to join us.
