Louisville area nonprofit passes out care kits for homeless veterans ahead of July 4th
A Louisville area organization is making sure veterans have their basic needs covered, even if they’re homeless.
Veteran’s Club made a number of stops Friday around Louisville to pass out care kits. Inside the kits were toothbrushes, snacks, socks, water bottles, clothes and other important items.
Organizers said passing out the kits is a small gesture they can do to care for those willing to serve.
“We want to honor those who have contributed to our freedom and way of life here, and one thing we never want to do is forget about those who are less fortunate or maybe in a recovery program, or may be going through some hard times in their lives but did sign the dotted line and (were) willing to die to defend our liberties here,” said Jeremy Harrell, founder of Veteran’s Club.
Veteran’s Club also offers support groups and other activities for veterans. The nonprofit works to provide connection, healing, and housing the veteran community in the metro.
According to its website, donations in 2020 helped Veteran’s Club provide services and support to more than 900 veterans and their families.
