Spokane-area Goodwill locations are seeking donations of new household items for military veterans recovering from periods of homelessness.
Goodwill Industries will collect the items from Nov. 8 to Nov. 22 and distribute them to local veterans moving into apartments or houses. The agency is seeking new bath towels, bed sheets, toilet paper and personal care items.
Goodwill’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, along with Volunteers of America and other organizations, works with homeless veterans and landlords to smooth the transition into permanent housing. More information is available at (509) 321-3348.
“It should not be acceptable to us that even one veteran is experiencing homelessness in this great community,” Clark Brekke, the president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest, said in a news release. “They have sacrificed and served so that you and I might have freedom.”
