Help us make our veterans feel at home.
Many times, we meet homeless veterans who are able to find apartments through another agency. These apartments are often empty, and the veterans and their families often have little to nothing during these transitional times. Embracing Our Veterans helps to take these veterans and families from homelessness to having a home with a warm bed.
When donating items, please, keep in mind that our Veterans and their families usually move into small apartments, so smaller furniture items go the fastest. Embracing Our Veterans volunteers can accept or decline donations at their discretion. We also hold events throughout the year during which we seek certain items like food for Thanksgiving baskets or toys for Christmas Angels deliveries.
If you would like to make a donation or are unsure if an item can be of use, please call (814) 636-1950. We can pick up donations.
