BENEFITING: Community Hope, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 08, 2017
Show your support and be a champion for those who honorably served our country by participating in the 16th Annual Flag Day 5K Run and Fun Walk. Registrants, sponsors and donors will help Community Hope rescue over 1,500 homeless veterans and their families this year. Many who served in our military are struggling with PTSD and other combat trauma, others are struggling to re-enter the workforce and support their families. At least 86 cents of every $1 raised helps provide housing and vital services to those who depend on our Hope for Veterans® programs. No other area organization is doing as much for our veterans in need! Community Hope is the leading charity serving homeless veterans and at-risk veteran families in New Jersey for more than twelve years. We are now reaching veterans in crisis in eastern PA as well. We provide Emergency, Transitional and Permanent housing for homeless veterans and their families. And Homelessness Prevention to help veteran families remain in their homes. We have rescued veterans from homelessness from multiple generations, some who served as far back as WWII but many Vietnam Veterans and an increasing number of veterans who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Increasingly, we are helping female veterans struggling with nowhere for them or their children to live. Please help us reach our goal of $160,000 and be a champion for our veterans!
