Blankets For Hope is one chapter of our Warriors Christmas Tale that we organize to benefit our Veteran families that are in need.
This is a movement seeking to fill a void within communities across our nation. The number of Veterans and their families on the streets, or sleeping in their cars every night is staggering.
The Cold Hard Facts:
Blankets For Hope - a Winter Clothing Drive for Homeless Veteran Families
Considering that whole families are homeless, the need is there for winting clothing for our Male & Female Veterans as well as their Children.
A touching story: Our volunteers were receiving clothing during December's winter weather when a family walked near and then stopped. One of them, a young girl around 10 years old, looked at her family for their approval then approached our tent. She asked; "Are you accepting coats for the children of our homeless veterans?" Our team responded with, "Yes of course." She then took the coat off her back and handed it to our team. The volunteers all started to cry and got that there is hope in our nation.Please become a Volunteer Champion and take on creating this event as a collaboration in your area. We will provide guidance and the formula for success.
