HVAF of Indiana, Inc. is responding to meet the needs of homeless and at-risk veterans by participating in the global #GivingTuesdayNow campaign.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
“In these unprecedented times, it will take our entire community to make sure the most vulnerable among us are taken care of.” said Emmy Hildebrand, VP of Strategy, “I’m so grateful to everyone pitching in to donate to support our veterans.”
1 out of every 3 homeless in our nation are veterans making our mission to “Provide Hope, Housing, and self-sufficiency for all veterans and their families” even more meaningful during this time of crisis. In order to continue to support our Hoosier Heroes, we are asking that people join us on May 5th in 3 different ways:
“Every little bit helps. Our needs during this crisis are not unique but the clients we serve are. In the simplest terms, we need nonperishable food, money, and new underwear. I’m also asking our patriotic supporters to sign up as sustaining monthly donors at a $10, $20, or $50 level.” said Brian Copes, President and CEO of HVAF, “This crisis will be with us for a long time and we will need your continued support. Thanks in advance for whatever you’re able to do to support our veterans and this agency.”
