"On behalf of the
Board of Directors and the residents of Vetsville Cease Fire House, I
would like to personally thank you for your kind donation.
It is through the
efforts of people like you that Vetsville is able to continue its mission
of reaching out to the homeless and disabled veterans throughout America.
National statistics show that on any given night there are 300,000
homeless and hungry veterans, many who are very ill, living in
unacceptable conditions in the United States.
of our time are that the number of homeless has grown to crisis
proportions in South Florida. In the Palm Beach County area alone there is
an estimated 2,000 homeless veterans; their needs are overwhelming.
We at Vetsville
are very proud of the fact that we are in our 12th year of continuous
operations, with our shelter located in Palm Beach County. Vetsville
operates a drug and alcohol free program with the overall objective of
returning the veterans to the social mainstream.
Once again, thank
you and God bless you for supporting disabled homeless veterans."
