VLP

Posted: November 26, 2018 in Uncategorized

We did it last year and were overwhelmed by the love and support of the R.A.W. community. We’re doing it again!

We’re asking for your help to fill stockings for The Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania (VLP). It 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! This Christmas R.A.W. would like to join with VLP to help make these Veterans holidays a little brighter. Now through Tuesday December 18th, we will be collecting filled stockings for these homeless heroes who have given SO much to our nation. We are asking ALL friends and family and colleagues to please consider bringing in a filled stocking by the 18th to then be distributed to these veterans.

Below are the ideal items to fill the “Homeless Hero Stocking”:

Shampoo
Deodorant
Toothpaste
Toothbrushes
Razors
Shaving cream
Soap
Wash Cloth
Body Wash
Gift cards to Walmart or Giant Eagle
Pair of Socks
Gloves

So if you and your family would consider stuffing a stocking for our Pittsburgh area heroes, please return your filled stockings to RAW by Tuesday December 18.

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.

Thank you,
R.A.W. Training Staff
