As patriots, we all need to stand up and help the less fortunate. There are so many of our veterans out on the streets; they’re neglected and over looked by the common masses. This Christmas season, please join us in trying to provide food and warmth to our homeless and veterans in need. Even if they are not on the street, there are a lot of veterans trying to scrape by with their families for the holidays.
American Patriot the III% with Overpasses for America to collect food and hygiene products to donate to veterans in need. Please look in your pantries for food you may donate. Contact your local state chapter of APIII by clicking here and inquire as to how you can donate. Some chapters are also looking for personal or hygiene products as well. Some suggestions of food that would be helpful are: coffee, soups, peanut butter, canned meats (chicken, tuna, spam, etc.), canned vegetables, canned fruit, boxed pasta, instant potatoes, macaroni & cheese, snacks, and jellies. With the cold weather coming chapters are recommending any winter clothing or warm blankets in some cases you could donate; but also soap, razors, tooth brushes, toothpaste, shampoo, and lotion
Many other organizations are also trying to help veterans this season especially children of veterans. Toys For Tots is always taking toy donations during christmas for less fortunate families including veterans. The other day I stopped by my local Dollar Tree store and was happy to see that they were doing something for veteran families. Dollar Tree has some toys sitting on their cash register counters that customers can buy to be donated to children of veterans in the area. You can also check with your local Veterans of Foreign Wars post to see if they are taking donations for veterans in your area.
Please get involved. Our nation is letting down the brave men and women that volunteered or were drafted to safe guard us. If you know a veteran in need of help please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we need to stop the loss of 22 veterans a day. With all of the recent coalitions and alliances among various patriot organizations and militias, providing help to our veterans should be an operation we can complete together.
