There are still a few days before Christmas and the end of 2021. We are looking for 100 people to help us close out 2021 with a bang - 100 people who will commit to $25 or more per month donation. This support will allow us to continue building our "Fresh Start" program - furnishing homes for veterans and others transitioning into permanent housing from living on the streets.

One Team. One Mission.

The past year and the beginning of 2021 has been very hard for our Foundation. For the most part, we had to shut down all operations due to COVID-19 and ongoing funding issues.

Truth be told - it's hard for me to sit back and not wonder / worry how our transitioning veterans and first responders are doing. If our doors are closed, then who is taking the reins and leading the fight...ensuring our veterans have the needed furniture and accessories to complete their transition from the streets?

For those that know me - you understand that this mission is in my blood, and it's imperative that we find a way to get this operation up and running again.
However, before I go too far down the road, I need to know who is with me in this fight - it's time to really make a difference and push forward. Let me know your thoughts please.

Good evening friends. It has been a while since we’ve posted any updates,
so I wanted to take a few moments and do just that.

As you know, COVID-19 had a devastating effect on our Foundation. We had to shut down our warehouse and suspend ALL donation pickup missions...we simply didn’t have the funding to keep moving forward.

During the last few weeks, I looked at how we could get our Foundation back up and running, and not worry about outside funding - that’s when I decided to launch New Beginnings Junk Removal. Although this is a “for profit” venture, money raised from doing “pickups” will go to help furnish homes for those in need.

We hope that this new mission will allow us to continue turning houses into homes, while also helping our customers get their own lives back on track.

So if you need stuff picked up and hauled away, please consider using New Beginnings Junk Removal. Send us a note at: [email protected] and check out our website at: www.newbeginningsjunkremoval.com

Good morning friends. As many of you know, COVID-19 has had a terrible impact on the overall health of our organization. With the lack of funding, social distancing, and people just scared, we had to suspend our operations and close the warehouse simply because we could not afford the rent.

Over the past few months, there has been a number of occasions when I have asked myself, is this the time to throw in the towel and surrender?

Everytime I get close to that point, I hear from folks from all around reminding me about the importance of the work we do...the fact that we give people a second chance at life!

While I know and understand our impact, the realization is that it still takes financial support to keep the operation moving forward. I can't afford to fund this program on my own. So here's my pitch to each of you in hopes that in the end, you'll see the simplicity and value and agree to support:

If each one of our friends on this page committed to supporting the Foundation at only $10 per month - we would never have to worry about closing the doors. If 50% of friends committed to $20 per month, we would have the same results and never have to worry about leaving anyone behind!

If you are willing to stand behind the work we do, then please visit our website at www.vettrack.org, click the donate button at the top of the page and commit to a monthly contribution...with your support we will be able to continue to serve those in need! Without this support - we will be forced to closed our doors for good!

Thank you for the consideration.

Good morning . As you may have heard, we are trying hard to keep the Foundation doors open. However, the Vets on Track Foundation is at a critical turning point, where tough decisions still loom on the horizon. COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on our ability to serve those in need. The "Stay at Home Order" has parked our trucks and kept them from making donation pickups or run our Delivery Missions. Additionally, this crisis has taken away most of our funding resources.

We are searching for someone who has in-depth knowledge in writing grant proposals. If you are that person or know someone who may be willing to support our mission, please send me a message at [email protected]...we need your help!

General information

It is vital that American communities better understand what America’s 911 Force and their families are facing – and use that knowledge to simply, positively, and productively help those families address the challenges that service to our country has imposed upon them. The Vets on Track Foundation is taking a step forward in providing the necessary support they need. We remain optimistic about the future of our veterans and first responders…no matter what uniform they wear, and positively encouraged by the reaction from communities all across the country to support the Foundation's Community Outreach Programs. We must keep that momentum going, so that our ability to link veterans and their families to existing programs, and the ongoing development of impactful, supportive services, will continue to play a vital role in the greater success of our veterans, and this Nation.

Turing Houses into Homes

It’s been a couple of weeks since we had our volunteers and other team-mates at the warehouse preparing for a Delivery Mission or a donation pickup. Over the past 3 and a half years, we have furnished nearly 500 homes for veterans, first responders and their families, and today, it seems very strange that we are at a complete stand-still - no donation pickups, and of course no delivery missions.

The effects of COVID-19 are real to our organization. The health concerns surrounding this virus has stopped us dead in our tracks. I know there are volunteers out their that want to get back to making a difference, but quite honestly, we don’t know when that will happen again? Since the virus struck - we have spent one Saturday at the warehouse just moving things around, making dump runs...just trying to bring a little organization into the place. Here lately though, it’s only been the Founder and CEO making runs to the warehouse to open the doors for other organizations like Micah Ministries, who are still making delivery runs on a case by case basis. This is one small way that we can still continue to support our community and those in need.

Today, we are still getting emails and calls for donation pickups (even though our website and page say we can no longer operate at this time). We still receive requests for support from veterans in need - but due to the nature of our work, it becomes very dangerous not only for our volunteers, but for the folks we serve as well.

The one piece that has truly hurt our Foundation is the lack of financial support during this desperate time. Financially, our Foundation is at a point that we may be forced to close the doors simply because be can’t pay the bills. If we are forced to close, then we have go down knowing that we did everything in our power to help those in need - we did make a difference. We have always said - it truly does take a village, and without the support we have received in the past, we could not have furnished those 500+ homes. So to our community partners and supporters - thank you for allowing us to do what we do. Let’s hope and pray that a small miracle can be realized, and we can keep our doors open to continue serving those in need!

Good afternoon. I’m Charlie Russell, executive Director of SAWs Virginia. We build wheelchair ramps for long-term ambulatory disabled who cannot afford one on their own. We prioritize Veterans and first responders. We received a call to assist a veteran who lives in a townhouse in Dumfries. He is a diabetic who recently had a leg amputation and is non-weight bearing on the other. The HOA of the complex where he and his family live will not allow a ramp to be built. The family cannot afford to move. I’m sending this in hopes you can come to his aid in some way that is beyond our ability. If you are able, please reply and I will provide the necessary details. Peace and Grace, Charlie Russell [email protected]
