Food & Donation Drives 2020
Support Natural Disaster Efforts
The US Veterans Hall of Fame is on the ground in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura, a powerful Category 4 storm that devastated Louisiana's southwestern parishes (counties which include the cities of Lake Charles, Cameron, Sulphur and Hackberry) and eastern towns within Texas along the shared border.
We are asking all Americans to join in the mission of helping this area rebuild. Please click the button below to donate any amount that you choose. Your donation will help buy the food, hygiene, essential clothing and housing repair kits to make sure our fellow Americans make it through the tough months ahead as seasonal storms continue and Winter looms on the horizon.
Thank you and God bless you.
The team at V.E.R.U likes to be as proactive as possible in the gathering of essential supplies that will be needed for relief efforts.
So, every year we team up with community partners to collaboratively host donation, food and clothing drives.
In the 2019 hurricane season, these efforts collected over 2,600 pounds of food (well over 5,000 meals), 700 garments of clothing, 400 lbs of hygiene and donations equaling $4000 !!!
We thank our partners for their amazing spirits during the process and for hosting such successful events!
Why was the goal higher in 2019?
In October 2018, we saw a major Category 5 hurricane
in Hurricane Michael.
The devastation left the Bay County area of Florida's Panhandle in complete ruins: from Panama City all the way to Port St. Joe. Families in those two cities as well as Mexico Beach, the Tyndall Air Force base and even Callaway, were left with very little to rebuild their lives on.
Insurance companies and government agencies were overwhelmed and forced to eject quicker than normal from the region.
However... For 8 months after the Hurricane, your V.E.R.U team has been on the scene as long as our donations and supply trucks have allowed.
This effort will take roughly 3 years to rebuild the cities within the county, and we want them to know we are continually here... like an extended family: as well as assist in new disaster regions.
2018-19 Continued Missions
