Information provided

The Exchange Club of LaPorte County, Sauers Buick, Big Ford, and LaPorte Chrysler have partnered to support the housing of homeless veterans in Indiana. Through Veterans Matter and the Exchange Club of LaPorte County, each dealership is donating $11 per car sold in the month of November.

Veterans Matter is a nationwide non-profit organization that works with the Veterans Administration to house homeless veterans and their families. Here in Indiana, more than 200 veterans and their families have been housed thanks to the leadership of Indiana Chairperson John Mellencamp. The same day Mellencamp became chairperson of the Indiana chapter, an anonymous donation of $37,000 was made, which helped lead the way to the now more than 200 housed. Visit www.veteransmatter.org for more information.

Through this partnership, The Exchange Club of LaPorte County, Sauers Buick, Big Ford, and LaPorte Chrysler hope to continue to make an impact in the lives of Indiana veterans.

For those not currently in the market for a new car, but still interested in making a difference in the life of an Indiana veteran, please send checks of donation to The Exchange Club of LaPorte County Indiana, P.O. Box 810, LaPorte, IN 46351, and write “Veterans Matter” in the memo line.
