Our all volunteer organization allows 100% of all monies to go to support the mission of the Anderson-Snyder Memorial Fund. Our funds have been used to purchase athletic equipment for deployed military overseas to have recreation time between missions. We have assisted military families to travel to see their wounded warriors brought home and hospitalized elsewhere in the U.S. We have assisted Veterans with war related medical needs that weren't fully covered. Annually, we award a minimum of two scholarships to deserving Hereford High students to further their education in memory of Norm and Josh who were both Hereford High alumni. Our funds will continue to remain focused on supporting military persons and their families during tough economic times as they readjust to life after serving to keep our country " the home of the free and the brave."
