Pentecost Sunday

This Memorial Day Weekend before your barbecue invite, make Memorial Day more meaningful by helping veterans exit homelessness.

VETERANS EXITING HOMELESSNESS:
MOVE-IN ESSENTIALS DRIVE

When a veteran leaves a shelter or transitional housing and moves to a permanent residence they often do not have the basic items needed to set up their new home. Aside from a need for bedding and furniture they need the basic items we often take for granted. This collection drive will serve to assist veterans that are moving into a new home. All of these items will be delivered to a VA facility to be distributed to a veteran in need.
