Proceeds to Homeless Veterans

The money raised in 2019 will be  presented to Homeless Veterans Assistance

“Operation – Leave the Streets Behind”

The program’s mission is to reach out to homeless Veterans and those at-risk of homelessness and provide them with immediate financial assistance and support. It also connects them with the social and community services to establish a long term solution to meet their needs. The circumstances that can lead to homelessness can involve many issues, from mental illness, to financial challenges, to family circumstances, to failures with the system, and much more. In the Veteran community, homelessness can impact not only the Veteran, but their family as well.

What our Veterans are saying:
“I came into the shelter for a shower and came out with a life.”
“Thank you for giving me a hand up.”
“It is a great feeling to close the door and feel safe.”
“Thank you for the assistance you provided, it has given me breathing room so that I may get the rest of my life in order.”
