Operation K.A.V.I.C. (Keller Assists Veterans In Crisis) is in its 3rd year of assisting veterans, reservists, national guardsmen, and their surviving spouses in Defiance County. What started out as simply using money collected from employee jeans days at Keller Logistics Group to buy gift cards for the veterans office to distribute to local veterans during the holidays has expanded into an annual fund that provides financial assistance to local veterans to fill the gaps in their veteran benefits.

"When you hear this sound a-comin' | Hear the drummer drumming | Won't you join together with the band"

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! No matter when you celebrate, or how many times you get to celebrate with family and friends, we all have our traditions.

For some, it's getting together with family, watching the Lions and then eating your feelings by devouring all the fixin's that make up your holiday spread. For others, you may get together the day after with your Framily and talk about the family drama that happened the day before. Whatever your traditions are, I hope they are everything you hope for this year.

The Operation K.A.V.I.C. Story

Posted by Meredith Mickey on 9/22/16 2:00 PM

Operation K.A.V.I.C. is an acronym for Keller Assists Veterans In Crisis. For those that may not be familiar with Operation K.A.V.I.C., it is a fund that was created to prevent our local military and veteran personnel (including armed forces veterans, reservists, national guardsmen and surviving spouses) from enduring financial hardship.

The idea behind it began in the middle of 2015 as our CEO, Bryan Keller, was admiring the other local, large companies’ corporate responsibility initiatives. He decided it was time that Keller Logistics Group and its affiliates choose a philanthropy and aim to provide the level of support the larger companies in our area continue to provide for their non-profit organizations.
