In the Service of

the approximately 1,000 Chicago Illinois and 300 Milwaukee Wisconsin homeless Veterans

Sharing the Warmth

November 11th (Veterans Day) to March 25th (Medal of Honor Day)

Note: The positive physical/mental health/wellness impact our simple care packages are having demonstrates the need to make this a year round effort. Detail will be posted shortly.

As valuable as winter weather clothing drives are, the United Relief Foundation has noticed over the years a shortage of essential personal care items during the fall and winter months.

This Sharing the Warmth cycle we will be focused on raising money to purchase  collecting donations of those essential items that most of us take for granted. And, the warmth will be each Veteran receiving a personal care package knowing that they have not been forsaken in their time of need.

Donation of essential items will be only accepted if securely packaged in a cardboard box no larger than 10″ x 10″ x 6″ deep with appropriate postage and shipped to:
United Relief Foundation
500 Lake Cook Road
Suite 350
Deerfield, IL 60015

Any essential care item that is not in original packaging or tamper protection seal is broken shall be disposed of without notice to the donor.

For pick-up or special delivery consideration of larger quantity donations, please contact the United Relief Foundation (888) 718-0989 Ext 1 or email
