The Veterans Food Pantry
In 2016 we received a total of 181,713 pounds of food for our veterans and their immediate families. Our local community donated 160,494 pounds, or 88 % of this total, we purchased 6% and the remaining 6% came from our state commodity program.
The Veterans Food Pantry supplies monthly, holiday, and Stand Down food boxes to each qualifying family, taking into consideration family size, dietary needs, income level and often-limited cooking facilities. Almost 250 veteran households received a nutritional food box every month. This year we served over 574 children for a total of 4,898 individuals in 2016.
The other services we offer are Showers and Laundry facilities, Monthly Haircuts, Access to the Internet and Peer Counseling, Community Referrals for local services and Medical Equipment loans.
While some of these services are geared to our Homeless Veterans many who do not fit into this category are offered other services and referrals to our local community. Donate Now
The Veterans Clothing & More Store
The Veterans Clothing & More Store is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Monday thru Friday from 10:00am – 4:30pm with the proceeds going to support our mission. We offer friendly service and quality merchandise at community prices.
Although we do request a monetary donation, we work with our clients on an individual basis to meet their needs. Through the generosity of community donations we have been able to outfit thousands of men, women and children of all ages with clothing, footwear, blankets, household items and furniture.
Qualifying homeless veterans are equipped biannually with seasonally appropriate One (Outfit) to Wash/One (Outfit) to Wear and offered access to shower and laundry facilities.
We also offer “move in” assistance to our newly housed Veterans. This includes the basic essentials and some furniture. We also try to make sure they have a bed and bedding. New Quilts that are donated by local churches in the Valley are given to the head of household to help them make a home. Donate Now
