Welcome Boxes

August of 2023 we started a new program where all the veterans we serve receive a “Welcome Box” for their new found home.  The welcome box contains all new items needed to setup an apartment including:  We will provide 200-300 of these “Welcome Boxes a year.  Direct cost of each welcome box is over $190 or $38,000 – $57,000 per year for the Welcome Box program. You can support our efforts by sponsoring products below. Or purchasing new products at Amazon, Target, Walmart or the Dollar Store.

Please know that we have a cost share agreement with our agencies so the Veterans never pay a fee. Your donation helps with purchasing of items, delivery, warehouse, setup and overhead such as rent, insurance and gas.
