I would love to get donations to personally put together care packages to hand out to homeless veterans at both the Long Beach, CA Veterans Administration as well as in Los Angeles. There are so many in need, Please help! More ...

In 2011, about 18 percent of homeless persons in Los Angeles County were veterans.

An estimated 20% are physically disabled

About 25% are mentally ill

About 42% to 77% do not receive public benefits to which they are entitled

Inspired by many visits to the Veterns Administration medical facilities and seeing the scores of homeless vets there trying to get services. It's heartbreaking to see these men & women in this situation especially after serving our county. They deserve more and we owe it to them. 

I was also inspired today by this video to not just sit idly by and do nothing. Any little bit helps.
