As Christmas draws closer and you finish your last-minute shopping for family and friends, consider taking the time to purchase an extra pair of boots or package of socks for a Veteran in need.
Your generous donation of clothing to our Veterans this holiday season will help us continue in our mission to help Veterans grow and thrive. Homeless Veterans who need clothing will benefit directly from your donations by helping to keep them warm throughout the winter season and bring them Christmas cheer!

No Time for Shopping? Consider Contributing to Our Mission with a Monetary Donation
If all your personal Christmas shopping has you bogged down and you don’t have the time to add more items to your list, please consider making a monetary donation to Veterans Place. Your generous donation will help support our projects, programs, our organization, and, most importantly, our Veterans.
