WHY WE MATTER
Making our communities better places in which to live is another core value put into action by ALA members every day across the country. Whether hosting a stand down to bringing vital health and support services to homeless veterans, or coordinating a send-off or welcome-home event for a deployed military unit, ALA members and volunteers are continuously at work in their communities, demonstrating the compassion and heart we have for those who serve our country and protect our freedoms.
