Every single U.S. Military Veteran, no matter their age, race, gender, political stance or preference takes an oath. An oath to defend the people of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic. That includes you and me, our children, our parents, our friends and neighbors. The United States Veteran does not discriminate on who they defend.
Tonight alone, there will be over 50,000 U.S. Military Veterans who do not have a warm bed to sleep in or a table to eat dinner at. These Veterans struggle to survive the brutal winter seasons, and some unfortunately succumb to the elements. How ironic for a Veteran who put his life on the line to defend our Country dies on the streets of his Country because he can’t find adequate housing or shelter.
This winter season VTROC will be supporting our homeless U.S. Military Veterans by providing the gift of survival – Backpacks for Heroes. Hundreds of backpacks will be filled with new boots, clothing, jackets, snacks/food, along with hotel vouchers with the hope they will be used on the coldest of nights.
Please consider donating to Backpacks for Heroes and keep our homeless U.S. Military Veterans in mind. $20 provides one homeless veteran with the gift of survival while 100% of your donation goes straight to our veterans in need.
