Homeless Veteran Winter Assistance

This crowd funding site was setup to raise capital for a new Nonprofit focused on providing basic life sustaining equipment to America's Homeless Heroes who have fallen on hard times.  Guided by the mantra “never leave a warrior behind”, a group of OEF and OIF Veterans concerned about the rapidly expanding Veteran homeless crisis and other key Veteran initiatives, formed The Salute Foundation.(https://www.salutefoundation.org/ )

Of the 18.2 million veterans in the United States, over 150,000 heroic American men and women are now homeless and feel abandoned by the country they once served so proudly. Female Veterans who served in the Iraq/ Afghanistan campaigns are the fastest-growing segment of the homeless Veteran population and from 2016 to 2017, the number of homeless female veterans increased by 7%, as compared to 1% for their male counterparts.

The organization is uniquely structured to help disadvantaged Veterans and their families improve quality of life, while enhancing conditions for displaced warriors. The organization is in need of funding to provide the socks, t shirts, toothbrushes and quality cold weather clothing, which is critical now that winter is upon us. While the organization has partnered with with veteran organizations additional funding is required to help as many vets possible get equipment before harsh conditions arrive. 

Please donate today to help a Veteran survive the winter. These brave warriors once provided the blanket of freedom all Americans sleep under, and this your opportunity the pay them back.
