We will get to the point...
We are in an unprecedented time, and none of us know how long this pandemic will last. We are continuing to be committed to ensuring that homeless veterans, poor seniors, and families have access to safe housing, food to eat, and to know that they are still cared for.
We have created The COVID-19 Resilience Fund to best support those in our community. It is our goal to build resilience in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to Governor Whitmer’s Stay Home, Stay Safe order we had to close all of our thrift stores. This is devastating to our operations to serve the community. The closures, although required for public safety, have hurt us badly. Our thrift stores provide $20k in support each day for life changing programs. We also had to make the decision to close our auto sales program to ensure the health of employees and customers alike.
The loss of this revenue has threatened the work in the community supporting seniors, veterans, and our neighbors. We know that the coronavirus is hurting people that were already struggling even more.
To put it simply, our seniors and homeless veterans are running out of food.
They have little to no income. They’re in desperate need of your help. Now more than ever before, seniors might have to decide if they buy food or pay for their prescriptions. Veterans that are homeless are having an even harder time finding a job. This virus is devastating the income and livelihood of our neighbors.
