About Very Merry Gifts 4 Vets
2018 brings in a new and exciting opportunity to give back to our veterans in need. Our attention will focus on those who have been previously homeless for at least a year and are permanently disabled in our very own community.
It is our goal this year to give them the things most needed. We will also include a Christmas drive to make the holidays extra special.
After a very successful project to adopt veterans at the Lafayette facility for Christmas in 2017 we realized many veterans need help all year long in our very own Northwest Indiana community.
We are collecting non- perishable items and food for the 44 veterans at NWI Veterans Village in Gary Indiana. So far, we have only met a few of the residents but they have been very grateful for everything we were able to take. After the tour of the home we realized they are truly in need of the basic necessities we all take for granted.
They have a beautiful building with small apartments which is wonderful, but many have no income at all. Only food stamps which does not buy much at today's prices. It does not buy paper products, laundry supplies or hygiene products.
Our goal is to give something back to those who gave their all to serve their country.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of disabled veterans who are in need at North West Indiana Veterans Village in Gary Indiana.
We wish to encourage the community to help us give back to those who served.
