The State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota was recently the recipient of funds from the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation which will be used to further the SCF Veterans Services Center.

The $1,825 donation from the foundation will be put towards the purchase of two computers to be used in the Veterans Services Center at State College of Florida's Venice campus.

The computers purchased have been much needed and will be used to allow military veterans who are looking for degrees and training by giving them online access to registration for college courses and more. The vast online world that will be available to the veterans who utilize the computers will make it easier for them to find information on VA benefits, job opportunities and other career options, credit transfer services, scholarships and transportation, to name a few. 

The mission of SCF's Veterans Services Center is to do their part by supporting veterans who have sacrificed for their country. Through the donation of the funds for two new computers, the center will be able to reach even more veterans than before. 

The Veterans Services Center operates in both Bradenton and Venice and is always in need of donations. The funds received from donations are put towards career and academic services, as well as counseling. 

For more information about the center, contact executive director, SCF Foundation, Cassandra Holmes at holmes@scf.edu, or visit the website at SCF-foundation.org.
