Helping Veterans, Their Family Members and Others Adversely Affected by the War on Terrorism
The "Freedom Fund" is a special project of The Weber Foundation of Helping Hands, Inc., a non-profit public charity organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and an exempt organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).
