As the weather turns colder, we at Frontline Defender turn our minds and hearts to area homeless veterans prompting the creation of “Operation Hotel-Victor!” (H for homeless, V for veterans)
Some statistics say as many as 23% of the homeless are US Veterans and on any given night 107,000 are homeless with 529,000-840,000 at some point being homeless throughout the year. 1.5 million are at risk of being homeless. Half of all homeless veterans are from the Vietnam Era.
Operation Hotel-Victor’s mission is to collect new and gently used warm weather gear, personal hygiene items, and nutritional prepackaged snacks to distribute to area homeless veterans.
If you can't make it into our stores to make a donation, you can make a monetary donation here on our website. We will use the money to purchase the items above.
