We had 16 out of 25 athletes (Brockport and Spencerport) attend the Eagle Star house on December 30th to deliver the donations we collected and to talk with and hang out with the residents.
All 25 of the families donated items that I asked for according to the veterans current needs.
We spent a total of about 5 hours on this event from the time we reached out to coordinate it with the Eagle Star House, to shopping for items the veterans needed, collecting them, delivering them and visiting the house.
I chose it while doing research in our community of organizations that helped homeless veterans. I came up with a couple of them and we chose this particular one as a collective group and the reasons were:
1. We felt strongly that NO VETERAN in this country SHOULD EVER BE HOMELESS and 2. It was within a surrounding community in which we all live.
