BENEFITING: Burbank Housing Corporation
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
With 316 units of affordable rentals, four After-school and Family Resource Centers and two nationally accredited child care centers under its ownership and management, Burbank Housing Corporation (BHC) has impacted the Burbank community and helped house hundreds of lower income families.
BHC's newly completed project, The Burbank Veteran Bungalows, is a service-enriched community that provides permanent housing for 11 formerly homeless veterans. BHC invites you to donate to our #GivingTuesday for BHC Veterans' Campaign. All donations will be used to create a common outdoor space for BHC's Burbank Veteran Bungalows.
After years of living in cars and the street, eleven formerly homeless veterans have now been living in their new homes for months. Shortly after opening the Burbank Bungalows, our veteran residents began requesting an outdoor sitting area where they could meet and continue to grow their neighborly relationships. Because there is no furnished common space at our veteran housing site, many of our residents sit out on their front steps just to interact with one another. A common outdoor space would provide an open area for socializing or simply taking in some fresh air. It will, most importantly, help them build a strong sense of community. After facing so much adversity and overcoming so many obstacles, BHC Veterans deserve a supportive environment that they are proud to call their home.
In the spirit of the holiday season, please donate to our #GivingTuesday for BHC Veterans Campaign! You can make this happen!
As a Thank You to our donors, BHC would like to reward their generosity with two general admission tickets to Flappers Comedy Club. To redeem them, please email your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: #GivingTuesday Thank You Gift.
