More of our country’s veterans are facing homelessness, food insecurity, and unemployment due to the epidemic and the economic hardship it has created for so many. According to the U S Dep of Veterans Affairs, almost 40,000 people in our country are homeless on any given night.
The forthcoming winter and holiday season can be especially tough for people who have PTSD. Thousands of homeless veterans and their cherished canine friends are without necessities for warmth and comfort. Yet, the dignity of a decent meal and basic supplies may mean the world.
They fought for us; now, we must fight for them. So, in celebration of Veterans Day, I’d like to encourage you to join us in distributing Good Packs filled with critical necessities and nourishing meals to homeless veterans. Now is the moment for us to do our part to help those who have given so much to safeguard our country.
Blankets, clothes, reusable water bottles, essential hygiene goods, pet food and treats, toys, slip leashes, and portable food/water bowls are among the items provided. Your contribution now guarantees that local Veterans Affairs offices around the country have enough supplies and nutritious meals to serve our nation’s warriors and their pets. In the name of all the courageous men and women who served, I ask that you kindly offer the gift of comfort to a veteran who is homeless and their pet as the chilly winter season approaches.
Your tax-deductible gift of $36 assists veterans suffering homelessness with Good Packs full of supplies, Pet Packs with pet care goods, and to-go food packs. For more information visit Greatergood.org
