Volunteer to collect food and pack up boxes of food, blankets, clothing and toiletries for Veterans and their families. Over 400,000 Veterans are struggling to feed their families. Many days throughout the month, the Veteran and their spouse will feed their children but they will go without food! Because there just isn’t enough. This is not healthy! No Veteran or their families should ever go hungry. These Veterans and their families are at risk-of-homelessness, due to high rent and low income. Volunteer to help us pack up the boxes that alleviates their hunger.
Volunteer to prepare and serve nutritious meals to our homeless Veterans. It is necessary, when living on the streets, to receive nutritious meals and water in order for the homeless Veteran to stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer and fight off disease. Sanitation is a major culprit of disease and deaths of our homeless Veterans. There is no place to wash their hands, let alone their bodies until we are able to place them in “The Barracks”. Therefore, we supply a small bottle of hand sanitizer to every homeless Veteran. Volunteer to help us fight hunger among our homeless Veterans.

Volunteer to Transport a Veteran
Many of our Veterans do not have transportation. Often times Veterans are unable to make it to their job, doctors appointments, job training classes or even the grocery store. This creates more jobless, hungry and sick Veterans. Which also creates more homeless Veterans. Show a Veteran you care. Volunteer to transport a Veteran to where they need to go, in order to make their lives better.
Volunteering to transport a Veteran to his job, doctors appointment, job training class, grocery store or even the Veteran and his dog to the Veterinarian, can be very rewarding. Getting to know the Veteran along the way is just one of the perks. Many Veterans live alone. Their only companion is their dog. You will find that they thrive when met with human compassion. It is very fulfilling to see that your assistance was greatly needed and overwhelmingly welcome.
To watch a Veteran in excruciating pain, hunched over slowly hobble into the medical office to receive his treatment. Then watch him walk out like a normal human being. Walking upright with a spring in his step, pain free and a huge smile on his face. These heartfelt moments of joy bring great happiness to the heart, not just for the Veteran but for the Volunteer as well. Transport a Veteran and watch the transformation with your own eyes.
