BENEFITING: NATIONAL VETERANS HOMELESS SUPPORT INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 24, 2013
As part of our Seasonal Support Program we would like to raise funds to put homeless Veterans in a hotel for 2 nights at Christmas time. While they are there they will receive presents such as gift cards, clothing, and camping supplies, a traditional Christmas dinner, as well as non perishable food and hygiene items to take with them.
At last years event we helped over 100 people, including...
-31 Veterans were put into hotels in Melbourne at the America’s Best Value Inn on New Haven Ave for two nights.
-28 Veterans were put into hotels in Titusville for two nights at the Super 8 Motel on Garden Street.
-13 needy veteran families recommended and referred from throughout the community received $500 + in support each ranging from gift cards to Wal-Mart to paying of bills. We also bought presents for 17 kids of those families for Christmas.
-9 female veterans at the Center for Drug Free Living Female Transitional Facility in Port St John were provided $100 each, plus we provided presents for two kids (1 each of 2 veterans) that were also living there.
-We provided gift cards totaling $100 to 5 veterans that were unable to go to the hotel due to them not wanting to leave their possessions.
This year we would like to expand our efforts to include homeless Veterans outside of Brevard County in Bithlo and Sebastian as well!
