Project S.O.S. Provide Sleeping Bags for Homeless Vets
Organized by: Black Star Surplus
Where did all the money go?
May 17, 2016
Over 12% of veterans who have been homeless for more than two years reported suffering from frostbite on multiple occasions.* American veterans are twice as likely to become chronically homeless, due in part to lack of transferable military skills, unemployment, and combat related physical and mental disabilities that sometimes lead to substance abuse problems.** Our goal is to donate as many military modular sleep systems to homeless vets as possible. While we understand this does not solve the problem of homelessness, we can help be part of the initial solution by keeping those who are homeless dry, warm and free from frostbite until other programs become available. ALL donations will be used to purchase sleeping bags and help cover the transportation costs to get these bags distributed across the United States. Read more and watch our progress.
