I want to thank all of the volunteers that came out last night to help with the Necessities Care Packages.

On Friday, April 10, 2015 Moonjumpers partnered with Lonnie Sherman of General Needs and Dr. Raymond Mascolo of the Knights of Columbus to provide the Veterans that are staying at the Salvation Army facility with a home cooked meal and presented each Veteran with a Necessities Care Package which includes items such as socks and underwear as well as a number of personal hygiene items. The Veterans were presented with short sleeve tee-shirts that were donated by the Huntington Townwide Fund, as well as, long sleeve United Way tee-shirts that were donated by our Corporate Sponsor, National Grid and short sleeve tee-shirts were donated by The Huntington Townwide Fund.

Joel Breiman, Salvation Army, Director of Social Services provided the Volunteers with a tour of their facility.  The Facility is always looking for non perishable food items for their Food Pantry which is available to people in need.  The homeless veterans that stay at this shelter can only stay at this facility for 90 days annually.

The facility is in need of computers and computer furniture for the veterans to apply for employment, look for housing, connect with loved ones far away and apply for necessary medical benefits.

We will be returning to help feed our Homeless Veterans Friday, May 15, 2015 and Friday, June 12, 2015.   We are planning to purchase sneakers and sleeping bags for the veterans, along with additional Necessity Care Packages.

If anyone is interested in providing assistance or volunteering they can contact Rob Benson for more details.
