WINTER SURVIVAL PACK FOR HOMELESS VETS
After handing out 1,000 winter survival bags to homeless veterans in December, we have found there is a still need for us to help many more homeless veterans stay warm. Please help us reach our goal of supplying vets on the streets with another 1,000 winter survival bags. You can pledge as little as a half bag up to multiple bags. Please see below for the contents of each bag and for more information.
Calculating time remaining
After handing out 1,000 winter survival bags to homeless veterans in December, we have found there is still a need for us to help many more homeless veterans stay warm. The number of homeless veterans is on the rise. In 2017, the number ticked up for the first time in seven years to 40,000. Many of these homeless vets live in areas affected by extreme winters, with sub freezing temperatures and feet of snow. In the fall, DV fans pledged 1,000 bags. We quickly handed those out to homeless veterans around New England. As winter presses on, we hope to handout another 1,000 winter survival bags to homeless vets across the country. We need your help to make this happen. You can pledge as little as 1/2 bag up to as many bags as you'd like. DV6 (Michael Rivers), a former homeless veteran and founder of Dysfunctional Veterans / DV Farm, will travel with a team to several cities across the country to give the bags to homeless veterans.
Each survival bag contains:
- Hand Warmer Packs
- Thermal Socks
- Hygiene Kit
- Assorted snacks
THE WINTER SURVIVAL PACK WILL NOT BE MAILED TO YOU. DYSFUNCTIONAL VETERANS WILL HAND OUT THE BAG(S) YOU PURCHASE TO HOMELESS VETERANS.
