Our community’s veterans need YOU to show you care with a Veterans Welcome Home move-in kit
Veterans who are moving off the streets lack some of those necessities that make a house a home. Your care, and household goods, to make all the difference.
We need 300 “Welcome Home” move‐in kits for the recipients of Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers. Your donations will go directly to a veteran family or individual transitioning into housing after weeks, months or even years of homelessness. Moving from the streets or shelter can be isolating, as veterans settle into their new home.
Consider dividing up the list among friends or family or making a giving tree at work.
Goods can be dropped off 24-hours a day at the Bud Clark Commons Day Center, 665 N.W. Hoyt St. Call Stacy Borke at 503-280-4720 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
