300 Veterans in Southern California Need Furniture
Furniture for Veterans
As with other needs, a veteran will require furnishings for their new residence when they leave a shelter or transitional housing. The question arises, “How and where do they obtain those furnishings?”
Where Will It Come From?
If a household is downsizing, moving or just getting new furniture, something needs to be done with the unwanted or older items. Rather than throw usable furniture out, Military Outreach USA suggests that donations be made to qualified veterans in the area.
How Does It Get to the Veteran?
All that is needed is to complete an online form indicating that you have furniture or other items to be donated. Once the form is submitted it will be forwarded to VA case workers in your geographic area.
If the VA has a veteran who can use your donation they will contact you directly.
By working directly with a VA case worker you will know that your donation is going to a qualified veteran. Also, depending on the size of your donation, arrangements for pick up and delivery will have to be made. There are many service agencies in the nation, such as the VFW or American Legion, who may be able to help in moving your donation.
Please note that there is no guarantee that your donation will be accepted as the need may not exist at the time you want to donate your furniture.
If you have furniture to donate please complete this online form.
