ELK GROVE VILLAGE IS SUPPORTING HOMELESS VETERANS
 April 13 from 9am till noon

The Community Character Coalition, our local VFW Post 9284, and the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans are sponsoring a collection/donation drive for desperately needed items for homeless veterans.

The collection will be at our local VFW Post at 400 East Devon on April 13 from 9am till noon.
 
The Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans (MSHV) has temporary homes and a commissary in Wheaton for men, women, and families.

Their mission is to empower at-risk veterans, and their families, to become self-sufficient, productive members of their community.

Counseling and job placement services are also available to homeless veterans. Only new items will be accepted. No gift cards will be accepted.
 
Their website has a list of immediate needs: helpaveteran.org
