Several non-profit organizations and local businesses who have formed a Homeless Veterans Coalition spoke to Neshaminy High School’s (NHS) Interact Club on Thursday, April 7th about enlisting their assistance in helping homeless veterans live better lives, and ultimately become financially self-sufficient.
“Our Interact Club plans to make a positive impact on this coalition by spreading awareness and bringing needed resources and manpower to help our veterans,” said Neshaminy High School’s Interact Club School Advisor Suzi Drake.
NHS Interact Club’s initial veterans community service project was in March when they sorted clothes that had been donated by various agencies. They categorized clothes by size, and then put together complete outfits, such as a t-shirt, pair of pants, long-sleeved shirt, outerwear, shoes and socks. They placed these outfits into bags to be delivered to homeless veterans in Bucks County.
