G.I.V.E. , Paralyzed Veterans of America’s clothing donation program, is now accepting donations from individuals who are looking for a way to give back and show their support for veterans this holiday season. The G.I.V.E program, which stands for ”Goods Inspiring Veterans Everywhere” accepts clothing, shoes, hats, belts and other household items for donation. One hundred percent of proceeds go toward supporting programs and services provided free to veterans by Paralyzed Veterans of America and its 34 chapters across the country.
“The G.I.V.E. program provides a great opportunity for those who are looking for a way to give back and support our veterans but may not be able to make a financial contribution at this time,” said Al Kovach, national president of Paralyzed Veterans. “During the holiday season it’s as important as ever to give back. By donating to the G.I.V.E program, you are directly helping to improve the lives of severely disabled veterans and strengthening the fabric of our community.”
G.I.V.E. helps support the many men and women who have served and sacrificed for our freedom. The funds raised from the program help provide veterans access to free programs that provide employment assistance, benefits assistance, advocacy and more.
The program is currently available in 13 cities across the country. Paralyzed Veterans is looking for community partners to join the effort and help expand the program’s reach by hosting a clothing donation box year-round at their local business or storefront.
