MEDFORD, Mass — This past Veterans’ Day, Service to the Armed Forces―along with board member Paul Sullivan and the generous employees of Verizon―provided new winter clothing for Massachusetts homeless veterans.
These items of clothing were a token of appreciation, honor, and respect to our vets on Veterans Day.
Donations were distributed to the following organizations:
- New England Center of Homeless Veterans, Boston
- Veterans Northeast Outreach Center, Haverhill
- Veterans Inc, Worcester
- Soldier On, Leeds
- Bilingual Veterans Outreach Center, Springfield
- Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center, Hyannis
Our Services to the Armed Forces team has also been working to ensure Massachusetts veterans and active service members have the tools they need to stay safe, strong and stable throughout this pandemic.
In November, the Red Cross donated more than 300 handmade face masks and Veterans Day cards to VA medical centers in Brockton and Jamaica Plain. We also provided resiliency workshops to 100 active service members.
