Leisure Care Communities Support Veterans

At Leisure Care communities, we strive to support veterans and their families, recognizing the profound impact of their service and sacrifice for our daily lives.

“We are happy and proud to partner with the VFW National Home for Children. It’s a great organization that gives back to those in need who served our country and fought for our freedom.” Jim Ausmus, General Manager, Fairwinds – River’s Edge

Fairwinds – River’s Edge independent living and The Landing of O’Fallon assisted living and memory care hosted their charity Golf Tournament to benefit the VFW National Home for Children, a non-profit organization that helps families of active duty military personnel and veterans through some of life’s toughest moments by providing housing, counseling, and more. This year’s golf tournament was a huge success, netting over $22,000.

“The generosity and support of our friends in Missouri and especially the good folks at Fairwinds River’s Edge has been overwhelming.  The funds raised from this golf tournament are earmarked for technology purchases to enable our case managers to better serve our veteran families. On behalf of our staff and the veterans and their families we serve, a heartfelt thank you!  We will see you in 2020.” – Fred Puffenberger, Executive Director, VFW National Home for Children

Next year’s tournament will be held on Friday, September 18, 2020. If you are interested in learning more about participating in next year’s tournament contact Stacy at Fairwinds – River’s Edge or register here. We’d love to hear from you!
