2015 Day of Action

2015 Day of Action

On Friday, June 19th, the United Way of Greater Los Angeles organized Day of Action where the community, corporate and philanthropic partners came together to mobilize the LA community to help veterans get back on their feet. Over 200 volunteers helped to sort, clean and organize thousands of pounds of donated clothing.
Aside from helping our veterans dress for success, Executive Secretary Treasurer of Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, Rusty Hicks, says it best, "We should thank veterans not just with a job, but a career."

2015_dayofactionThis year, as Los Angeles County strives to end veteran homelessness, we must ensure that all of our veterans are on a path to self-sufficiency.  Take action today!

Give: We have a funding gap of $1 million. Vets have rental vouchers, but not the funding they need to pay for a security deposit and other move in costs.  Click here to donate.

Advocate: Work with your local communities to advocate for permanent housing in your neighborhoods.  Send a letter in support of an Act that will increase affordable housing resources in California. Click here to learn more.

Volunteer: Your time to help spread the word has more of an impact than you think. Share this with your social networks. You may also find local teams working to find homes for those who are eligible. To learn more, please click here.
