Soldiers Home Relief Fund Collection

MG-012: The Soldiers Home Relief fund was created to aid all those affected by military service. Especially during WWI the organization contacted family members and others affected by the service to offer aid depending on their financial need. This collection contains letters from servicemen, some thanking the organization for their help and some refusing the proffered service. Financial statements of servicemen and minute books of the meetings of the Soldiers Home Relief fund are also found in this collection.
