Food Drive for Homeless Veterans


VA Butler Healthcare’s Health Promotion & Disease Prevention (HPDP) Program Committee recently organized a food drive to support local homeless Veterans. VA Butler collected close to 900 non-perishable food items, including canned vegetables, cereal, pasta and gift cards to Giant Eagle. All food items will be distributed throughout February to our Veterans who need it most.

This is the first year for the food drive, but the HPDP Committee hopes to make this an annual event. “We’d like to thank our employees and community organizations for generously contributing food to make this first event a success,” said Karen Dunn, HPDP Program Manager. “Our Veterans have sacrificed so much and this is just one way we can help give back to Veterans in need.”

VA Butler Healthcare partners with the local community to offer a wide array of special programs and initiatives designed to help homeless Veterans live as self-sufficiently and independently as possible. VA’s major homeless-specific programs constitute the largest integrated network of homeless treatment and assistance services in the country and VA is on track to meet the national goal of ending Veteran homelessnessin 2015.
