Join Veterans Place for Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Veterans Place of Washington Boulevard is excited to announce that we will be participating in Giving Tuesday on May 5th, 2020.  Amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, your support is even more critical to our veterans in the Pittsburgh region.

What is Giving Tuesday?

This day was created in 2012 to encourage people to do good in their communities. It has grown greatly over the last seven years, inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity together in their communities around the world.

How You Can Help

Veterans Place, devoted to the health and well-being of one of our city’s most vulnerable populations, has KEPT ITS DOORS OPEN. At a time when many other homeless veterans’ support services have closed Veterans Place, founded in Pittsburgh in 1996, is a shelter from the COVID-19 storm.

Our van continues to pick up homeless veterans from shelters and the streets every single day to bring them to our campus on Washington Blvd. for a hot meal. Veterans should be safe.

This Giving Tuesday, we ask that you make a donation to our COVID-19 Emergency Response Campaign to help us cover the costs of:
  • Cleaning supplies, masks, and sanitation products
  • Dedicated staff working round-the-clock
  • Canceled fundraising events that provide crucial operating funds
Join our community of supporters on Giving Tuesday by making a donation to help empower veterans’ transition from homeless to home. They need you now more than ever.
You don’t have to wait for Giving Tuesday to make your gift.
