Veterans Leadership Program

Posted: December 14, 2017 in Charity
We received this note from Adam Galando about the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania stockings we collected:
 
“I felt so blessed for the opportunity to drop off the stockings today. I was able to get a full tour and really get an understanding of how amazing the donations R.A.W. gave were. Here is a picture of their stocked shelves, which were going to be given out tonight! God is good!”
 
Here are some pictures of Daniel Blevins speaking to our class, the collected stockings, and then the final stocked shelves!
 
 
We asked for your help to fill stockings this holiday season for the Veterans in Pennsylvania and the response was overwhelming!
 
The Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania is an amazing nonprofit organization that provides job training for homeless veterans in and around the Pittsburgh area. They provide service fairs that give homeless veterans haircuts, warm clothes for winter, housing, food, boots, sleeping bags, etc…
 
Currently at this moment, VLP has over 400 homeless veterans in their charge – FOUR HUNDRED!!! Whether that be in homeless camps outside the city, in shelters, in temporary housing… It’s an unseen epidemic in our beloved city. And those are just the ones they know about and currently are in touch with and keeping track of!
 
 
You can also make a donation directly through PayPal to VLPhomelessheroes@gmail.com (Donations are tax-deductible and if you would like a receipt for your donation please email the above address and they will get one to you.)
Please help join together to remind these 400 heroes that they are loved and not forgotten this holiday season.
