Care Comfort Compassion
Annual Tradition | November 11th to December 31st
Empowering self-worth, bolstering health and wellness, revitalizing self-dependence and improving quality of life are the profound, lasting differences our ‘Tis the Season of Service good deeds providing one-on-one interaction and self-sufficiency support makes in the lives of the Veterans we touch.
Why We Are Needed
11% of the adult homeless population are Veterans, and Tens of Thousands are Homebound and Hospitalized.
Each year, over 6,000 Veterans Commit Suicide, 400,000 Suffer from Invisible Wounds and 4-million have a service-connected disability.
Almost 1.2 million Veterans Live Below the Poverty Level and countless numbers are Residing in Sub-standard and Transitional Housing.
Compound Your Generosity
You may be surprised to learn that the basic personal hygiene products most of us take for granted every day are a luxury to more Veterans than you think and just one personal care kit helps boost a Veteran’s dignity more than you could know.
Choosing the United Relief Foundation on Smile.Amazon.com to purchase a women’s personal care (basic hygiene) kit will generate a donation of 0.5% of your purchase to the Foundation from Amazon. Please consult with a tax professional to the extent your purchase (contribution) is tax deductible.
Today is a good day to do a good deed that will help our Veterans in need know they have not been forgotten and their service has not been forsaken.
