Robert J Dole Homeless Vet Program
The goal of this program is to place a homeless Veteran and his family immediately into emergency shelter placement and then quickly into permanent housing. The system would provide case management/wrap-around services when they are housed to help the Veteran/family re-integrate into the community and become independent.
A lot of items are needed to help make this program work.
A list of needed items:
Queen size bed frame
Kitchen Garbage Can/Trash Bags
Queen size comforters and sheets (queen size beds donated from mattress company)
Dish drying rack
Only used items will be accepted if they are “like new”: Pots/Pans, silverware, cups, plates.
Gift Cards are also needed to help out (ie: small increment, Gas Cards, Fast Food cards, Dillons cards).
American Legion Post 81 will be contributing to this very worthy case to help get homeless Veterans/families off the streets. If you would like to donate to this cause, we will have a collection point here at the Post.
You may also donate directly to the VA at Bldg 5 Monday -Friday from 0800-1600 or by contacting Melissa Garner at 316-685-2221 Ext 57311
