Giving Back for the Holidays

You can offer hope and transform lives.


The holidays are a time to celebrate; a time to spend with family and friends. But for so many individuals and families struggling with homelessness, having something to smile about doesn't come easy. As many of us enjoy presents, food and fun, there are countless veterans, men, women and children who can't put food on the table, keep warm through winter, or even find a safe place to sleep. You can help bring joy to the veterans, adults and children we serve through our holiday Caring Gifts campaign. You'll find that you're giving more than just a coat or a toy - you're giving hope to those who need it most.

You can give back this holiday season.

Contact us and we'll help you get started.
