Serving Military Service Members and Veterans in the Lakes Region

Buddy Check Coffee

The LRVC would like to offer anyone who has ever served in the military a chance to virtually connect with a fellow service member by providing each person a free coffee!
Just register yourself and another participant and a $5 gift card for a coffee shop will be either mailed or emailed (based on your preference and availability) to both participants. After you receive your gift card, we just ask that you connect with the other person and have a conversation. 
We can also set you up with a buddy that you do not know. You will receive a $10 gift card if you connect with someone you do not know.
