Will YOU help give the gift of comfort to a homeless veteran and their pet this GivingTuesday? Give the gift of Good Packs full of essentials to our nation's heroes.
According to the VA, there are nearly 40,000 homeless veterans in the U.S. at any point in time. Already facing a difficult situation, COVID-19 has made matters much worse. Potential jobs are limited, and food insecurity is on the rise. Many of these veterans have comfort or service animals that are essential for their safety and mental health, but also require care of their own. And yet another challenge: many homeless shelters don’t allow pets, forcing our veterans with pets to choose between a warm bed and their companion.
The holidays can be especially difficult for this population, especially those suffering from PTSD. These heroes should not have to feel alone and without support at a time when most people are celebrating with loved ones.
That’s why, this holiday season, Greater Good Charities’ Good Packs program is planning to deliver over 2,000 Good Packs for homeless veterans and their pets. Each Good Pack provides essential comfort and survival supplies (blankets, food, hygiene items, dog toys, treats, and much more) to veterans and their pets living on the streets who are seeking permanent homes.
But we cannot do it without you. With your support, we will target areas with high at-risk veteran populations that have also been hit hardest by COVID-19 nationally. These heroes need you more than ever during this GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
You can help. Any amount helps, and a gift of $40 will sponsor a full Good Pack for a veteran and a pet in need. Show them you care this GivingTuesday by giving the gift of comfort to our veterans.
