Advia Credit Union Helps to Provide Local Veterans with a Hand Up

Parchment, MI – Advia Credit Union is proud to partner with Veterans Helping Veterans SWMI to provide essential items for Veterans in our community. Together, they are shining a light on Veteran homelessness and providing two local Veterans a hand up, not a hand out.

“In early November, we partnered with Veterans Helping Veterans to fully furnish the apartment of a local Veteran,” says Nancy Loftis, VP of Marketing and Public Relations at Advia Credit Union. “In addition to purchasing the items for the apartment, team members helped deliver the items and set up the apartment for Ray. A short video of the day can be viewed here.”

A second apartment will be furnished for a local Veteran and her two children this week. All items were purchased using donations from employees and Advia Credit Union. The Veterans received furniture, pots, pans, cleaning supplies, and other essential items to make it possible for the family to function in their home.

“Based on the last Point-in-Time count in January 2018, the VA estimates nearly 38,000 Veterans were experiencing homelessness,” says Larry Bales, President of Veterans Helping Veterans SWMI. “If more people and businesses could partner with us like Advia did, we could make a big difference in the community.”

Veterans Helping Veterans is fulfilling its mission because of generous monetary donations and donations of essential home items from community members. Monetary donations can be made online at vetshelpswmi.org. To volunteer your time or donate items, contact the organization at 269.966.5764.
