About 1st Veterans Kids Care

1st Veterans Kids Care, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, was born out of a child’s act of kindness that touched a father’s heart.

When Anton Cardinal was fifteen years old, unknowing to his parents he took his saved allowances and donated those funds to an organization that helps children who are fighting the effects of cancer and who were also in need of food and clothing. His selfless act led his father, Mr. Anthony Cardinal, to pursue helping several veterans in need of financial assistant and continue to help veterans and the families of those who serve by creating this organization 1st Veterans Kids Care, Inc.

Many people talk about the things they wish they could do for those less fortunate, but the Cardinal family has actually put actions behind Anton’s intentions and brought to life an organization that is viable and desirable, an organization that shows what a significant impact an individual with a HEART TO HELP can make in their communities and in our great country, the United States of America.
