Isn’t It Great to Know Sarasota Suncoast citizens are Caring?

Thank you to all who helped make our second annual drive for items to help our local veterans a huge success. December has become a unique time to demonstrate caring for the Sarasota Suncoast’s homeless veterans and their families. Our deciding to make this an annual event was easy.

Using online communication to reach out to our local community, items were donated through us to the veterans. Our family, friends and neighbors contributed items and we delivered them to the wonderful organization that does so much good in our community. The creative sincerity people showed our veterans that are having a touch time is an inspiration and motivation to continue every year.

Sarasota is truly blessed to have such considerate, giving people. Their enthusiasm is refreshing and powerful. Living and sharing Paradise with generous people that give gifts to our homeless veterans is humbling.

Operation Military Assistance is headed by Jocey Henderson. Jocey is the Director of Veterans Services  who served our country in the Army for over 30 years and achieved the rank of Command Sergeant Major before retiring. She continues to serve our country by working with our local veterans.

They work with Veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Their goal is to help the families find housing and provide wraparound services for them.

The donations we brought are greatly needed and they also always have a need for working bicycles to help the homeless veterans that lack transportation and therefore, unable to engage in services.

Coming up in April they will be hosting Operation Standdown in partnership with many other local organizations to provide a day of caring and respite for our local homeless veterans. It will be at Payne Park and the veterans can come and receive food, clothing, haircuts and all kinds of services that they do not otherwise have access to.

Thank you all again for helping us to help our veterans that have served our country.
