Local veterans programs

Does anyone know of any local programs that help veterans in any way? I'm looking to donate.

Locally, many of the vets services not provided by the VA are coordinated through the American Legion on Willow Grove St. If you'd like to donate specifically for local vets, that would be a good place.

Operation Chillout is also local:

Veteran's Haven North is a transitional housing facility for homeless veterans run by the state. They publish a wish list of items needed by the veterans; go to FORMS on the home page, http://www.nj.gov/military/veteranshavennorth/ , and then WISH LIST.

The facility is located in Glen Gardner off of Rt 31....not far.

Geeeez......, how sad...if this were about a missing or abused dog or cat, the thread would be going for a month +

How sad that people choose to ignore the ones that give them the freedom to carry on with their lives.

Just my own opinion.

You donate, you participate, you contribute, you help all the ways you can. But you also helps others so you are told you "ignore". How sad.

Just my own opinion.


Steven...did I miss something? Was this post about an abused vet or a vet in need?

Get over it already Steven, like I said before start your own thread if you feel so passionate about it.

There is nothing wrong with people having compassion for other causes even though it doesn't fit your particular agenda.

Steven, if you coordinate a drop off locally, I'm sure people would donate. We had one for veterans at work, to send necessities to the troops. People made it a point to add items while they were out shopping.

Reaching out to local Girl or Cub Scouts troops to organize a drop would probably help as well. I'll talk to my Daisy Scout leader. What a great cause and teaching moment.

this reminded me of somebody


Thank you. We decided to donate all of the profit from our St Paddys day lunch and bar sales at David's Country Inn to "operation chillout".
