May 30: Rotary to Pack Backpacks for Homeless Veterans

By on May 25, 2017

The Rotary Club of Indianapolis is excited to host a service project during our regular club meeting on Tuesday, May 30.  Bring your friends, family and colleagues out to experience what our motto, Service Above Self, really means.  We’ll work in assembly line fashion to pack over 100 backpacks full of toiletries and essentials that HVAF (Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation) will distribute to homeless veterans in Indianapolis.

HVAF helps homeless veterans return to self-sufficiency and engages at risk veterans to prevent them from becoming homeless by providing supportive housing, case management, food, hygiene and clothing as well as other essential services. Last year, because of the services that HVAF provides, 2,259 veterans had a safe place to sleep, and 1,205 family members including 554 children received the counseling and guidance they needed to help them become self-sufficient.

The program will also include a salute to our Rotary vets, as well as a special message from our own active duty soldier, Major Destiny Scott.
