Art materials for homeless vets

$1,675 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 18 months
I am a Vietnam veteran and I volunteer at a non-profit organization for homeless veterans in Sauk Centre, MN. called The Eagle's Healing Nest.
This beautiful home is situated on 260 acres of land and is a place where our veterans heal with "honor and dignity." 
I have been a volunteer at the EHN since 2014. I teach, painting, drawing, woodcarving and how to write poetry and short stories. All my funds and materials are donated. These classes are very theraputic for veterans suffering PTSD and other war related disabilities. 
It would be wonderful for our homeless veterans to have art and poetry as a distraction to the horrible memories of war. I will be able to complete my dream of helping as many homeless veterans as possible. 
Before Spring of 2017, I need funds to buy  classroom chairs, tables/desks, table lamps, carving tools, power carving tools, carving wood, paint, canvas and a variety of paper.  I have three classes two days a week and I struggle to provide materials for 8 to 12 veterans per class.  We have 65 veterans living at EHN and I need to provide an opportunity for all of them to attend classes with a sufficient amount of materials.  All of our EHN veterans deserve my help and compassion for art and poetry. They our need help to heal with "honor and dignity."
