This GivingTuesday, provide food and essential supplies to vets and their pets experiencing homelessness.
As winter approaches, nearly 40,000 veterans experiencing homelessness and their beloved pets lack essential supplies for warmth and comfort. Most homeless shelters do not allow pets. On any given night, veterans without homes are forced to choose between staying with their pets and facing the dangers of existing outside, or checking into a shelter and abandoning the only family they know.
The security of basic comfort items and nutritious meals can help bridge the gap for our veterans and their pets as they seek to secure permanent housing.
Greater Good Charities works to provide food and comfort items to veterans experiencing homelessness in areas with high veteran poverty populations. Through our relationship with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, these essential items will ensure local veterans have access to basic supplies and nutritious meals.
Along with food, our Good Packs include basic survival supplies in functional backpacks to veterans in crisis. These supplies for people and pets include blankets, clothing, reusable water bottles, basic hygiene products, pet food and treats, toys, slip leads and collapsible food/water dishes.
Thanks to your generous GivingTuesday donations, we will be providing 3,324 Good Packs to veterans and their service animals facing homelessness this winter!
They fought for us—let’s fight for them. Your gift today will help our Good Packs program, and support Greater Good Charities' other lifesaving programs to help those in need. Just $50 can send a Good Pack to a veteran and their pet!

What a great way to help our Vets and their pets who gave fallen on bad times. No vet should be homeless. We need to find a way to see they are taken care of when they return home or lose their home at no fault of their own.. I will continue to give this way because at least they are getting some help. I try donating to this cause a couple times a year.
