The Veterans and Community Housing Coalition has started a crowd funding campaign to help feed veterans who may be struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.
The organization, which provides housing and support services to homeless veterans and their families, is looking to raise $20,000 and has raised $2,370 as of Friday.
“Men and women who have served our country are homeless for many reasons. They are dealing with post traumatic stress disorder, mental illness, addiction, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, all stemming from their service to our country,” said Cheryl Hage-Perez, executive director of Veterans and Community Housing Coalition. “Our Veterans are losing their jobs and experiencing more health issues. We have been able to provide these basic needs to our veterans through the generosity of donations. Our supplies are very low and understandably donations are not coming in.”
The fundraiser can be found at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/food-for-our-veterans and 100% of your donation goes directly to food, paper products and supplies for veterans in need.
