HOMELESS VETERAN’S SAFE HAVEN AND RESOURCE CENTER which will be opening in early 2016 at 201 SW 4th Street (currently the Armed Services YMCA).
Please join us for our first official fundraiser which will be in the west Salas parking lot on Monday, April 27 from 10am to 2pm. We are asking for donations of new and gently used men’s clothing, at least 35 new twin sheets (fitted and flat) and pillowcases, 35 new twin or full blankets, 35 sets new towel sets, 35 new pillows…you get the idea.
Below is more extended Wish List, though it’s still the Short List:..
We are also hoping for corporate sponsors to step in with larger cash donations, in increments of $500, $1,000, $2,500 and up. This Safe Haven will also house Calvary Baptist Church’s Free Dental clinic. They now do extractions once a month, and their goal is to be able to provide extended, more frequents services. Cash donations will go where the donor wants them to go…Dental Clinic or Safe Haven.
