This money is used for relief and welfare work among the local disabled veterans, their families and families of deceased veterans, and constitutes the principal financial support for this work. Part of the money, varying in the various states, goes to the state organization to support similar work, and a small percentage is contributed by the states to the national organization to help support the national phases of the rehabilitation and child welfare programs.
