Community's Help Needed in Collecting Items for Local Veterans

Personal care items and other necessities that will be packed into totes and then distributed.

At any given point in time hundreds of Veterans are homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless in our community - that’s why the American Red Cross Evansville-Wabash Valley Region began its annual Totes for Hope campaign. This program is designed to provide Veterans personal care items and other necessities that will be packed into totes and then distributed. To ensure that adequate totes are provided to Veteran heroes, the American Red Cross is asking for the community’s assistance in obtaining as many items as possible. The community is encouraged to donate items such as:
