Homeless Vets Helped by Many
Generous donors contributed over $3,000 worth of clothing, toiletries and gift cards to the Volunteer Center of Bergen County's recent collection on behalf of area homeless veterans. The drive was part of a national campaign associated with the Martin Luther King Day of Service to assist veterans, and was the single largest donation of goods ever received by the Bergen County Department of Veterans Services.
“It was very heart warming to see people of all ages and backgrounds donating items for homeless vets,” said Barbara Wiederecht, organizer and director of the Center's RSVP program. To make a donation to help a homeless veteran, call 201-336-6325.
