The Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL) was founded in 1942 by the sport of bowling to help support America’s heroes in uniform. Since then, we have raised almost $30 million to provide recreational and therapeutic programs and services which helps boost morale and brighten spirits. Thanks to BVL, more than 500 active duty units have a portable carpet bowling lane at their disposal where they can step away from the stress of service and have fun with their comrades. Through BVL funding, veterans recuperating at VA Medical Centers across the country can enjoy a movie, spend the afternoon at a ball game, play a video game, be visited by friendly Labrador, or try their hand at painting.
At BVL, we pride ourselves on having a extremely low overhead expense, at just 9%. Our funding goes right where it is needed. Join with us to help us serve those who have served our country!
