Veterans Essential Kits of Love
After learning about Michelle Obama and Jill Biden’s Joining Forces initiative to end veteran homelessness, Pioneers in Los Angeles were inspired to join in by helping a local program that moves veterans out of homelessness and into permanent housing.
Pioneers realized that while these veterans were getting a permanent home for the first time, most of them did not have the essential household items they needed to live and survive. Many could not afford to go out and purchase these items themselves.
Pioneers stepped up to fill this need with Veterans Essential Kits of Love. The kits give veterans a helping hand as they begin a new life away from homelessness. Kits include items such as dishes, cookware, towels, sheets, flatware, cleaning supplies, first aid kits, and hygiene supplies.
The Veterans Essential Kits of Love kits helped ensure that veterans who have sacrificed so much feel welcome in their new homes. And by assisting homeless veterans, Pioneers are helping to make positive and tangible impact in their community.
