Sweats for Vets

Monday, October 04, 2010 10:38 AM

I appreciate your time, and hope I am not inconveniencing you. I am part of SAIC’s Military Alliance Group (MAG) and today marks the beginning of our “Sweats For Vets” Campaign (running today through Veteran’s Day). I am the Chicago Area coordinator, and I would like to ask for your help in providing warm clothing to our Homeless Veterans, and Veterans in Financial Crisis in the Chicagoland area.

We have partnered with the Jesse Brown VA Medical center for the Chicago area, and I am spearheading the local campaign to raise clothing for our homeless veterans. The Jesse Brown VA Medical center has a homeless veterans assistance program that provides a short stay, counseling, and clothing to homeless veterans. On any night there are approximately 120 homeless veterans at this program, and since a veteran can only stay three nights at a time, the size of the need becomes readily apparent.

If you or others in your workplace have time to help those who gave so much for all of us, there are two avenues for giving. I will collect (1) clothing or (2) monetary donations on behalf of the MAG and the VA (all checks need to be payable to “Jesse Brown VA,” and will only be useable by Jesse Brown VA toward clothing for veterans).

The Jesse Brown VA will issue a thank you letter and receipt to you for your donations for tax purposes (in the same way as Goodwill, or Vietnam Veterans of America). For the local area, I am able to travel to your location (including Champaign) to pick up any donations you are able to give, and for those outside of Chicago, I can provide a mailing address for you to send the donations.

Please help those who gave so much…and are still giving.

R,

Thomas D Sampson, USN (former)
