What Do Homeless Veterans Need?

Approximately 13 percent of the population are veterans. Roughly 40 percent of all homeless veterans are African-American or Hispanic, despite only accounting for 10.4 and 3.4 percent the U.S. veteran population. During colder seasons, vets could use coats, blankets, gloves, hats and canned foods which require minimal cooking. Visit the National Association of Black Veterans website here to find a chapter to donate to near you.
