Security Service Charitable Foundation Helps Homeless Veterans with $5,000 Donation

(SAN ANTONIO, TX - June 23, 2020) –– The Security Service Charitable Foundation is donating $5,000 to Endeavors to assist with Supportive Services for Veterans and their Families. Endeavors serves homeless veterans as well as veterans at risk of becoming homeless throughout the state of Texas. The charitable donation will be used to provide welcome-home and hygiene kits for veterans.

We are so thankful to the Security Service Charitable Foundation for equipping our at-risk Veterans with necessary items to get back on their feet,” said Annie Erickson, Senior Director of Veteran and Community Based Programs at Endeavors. These home and hygiene kits help restore dignity and improve the quality of lives for so many.”

Welcome home kits cost an average of $350 and include items such as plates, silverware, pots and pans, shower curtains, towels, bedding, and cleaning supplies. Hygiene kits average $50 for men and $65 for women. These kits include razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, body wash, shampoo, deodorant, socks, underwear, brushes, sanitary pads, and body lotion.  

Our veterans have already given so much for our country and yet many find themselves facing their toughest battle, homelessness,” said Brandy Ralston-Lint, senior vice president of corporate communications for Security Service Federal Credit Union. We are proud to support Endeavors as they help veterans re-enter housing with the tools they need to be successful.”

Endeavorsgoal is to rapidly re-house or prevent homelessness for veterans and increase their access to healthcare, benefits, and income. Once housing is secured, veterans initially need essential daily items to maintain their homes and personal hygiene. An estimated 77% of veteran households in the Endeavorsprogram have attained exit or self-sufficiency. 

Endeavors recently received $3.3M additional dollars through the CARES ACT to provide assistance to veterans throughout Texas who are impacted by COVID-19. Endeavors can distribute the funds to landlords for Veterans who have fallen behind in their rent. More information is available online at endeavors.org/ssvfcares.
