We want to send a huge shout out to thank the Barre Elks Lodge #1535 for another huge donation of new products for our Veterans to use when they are ready to move into their new homes! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸😊🤗 This Elk’s Lodge has been doing this for 6 years now and it makes a huge impact on the lives of our residents when they are ready to head out on their own after staying with us and accomplishing all their goals. God Bless you all! 🥰

Thank you Fritz for trucking your smoking trailer over and doing 20 racks of ribs. Thank you Dylan Haupt, Cullen Haupt, Paul Abare, Pete and Katrina. For helping make this meal happen! We started the morning by making homemade donuts then the ribs arrived and went into the smoker, Pete made coleslaw and hush puppies, and I made baked beans. It was a great way to spend a cold day in Vermont, appreciating our Veterans! 💕❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Dear Friends,

We hope this letter finds you in good spirits and even better health. As 2020 draws to a close, we’d like to take this time to thank you for your support, and let you know what an incredible difference you have made.

This year, The Veterans’ Place, Inc. transitioned 22 homeless vets, providing them with the second chance they so desperately needed to get back on their feet. And although our success rate was a few percentage points lower than usual, it still met the National Veterans’ Administration benchmark, even with all the challenges we faced this year!

In other great news, due to the extraordinary efforts—and sacrifices—of our residents and staff, our facility has been Covid-free throughout the pandemic! And now, with a vaccine being made available throughout Vermont, we can see the end in sight!

That said, pandemic restrictions—particularly during the spring and summer—adversely affected our overall admissions. And because our monthly income from our grant-per-diem (GPD) arrangement with the VA is based on the number of residents there are at any one time, we are, quite frankly, struggling to meet expenses.

Indeed, even when we are at full capacity, the GPD covers only about 70% of our operating costs. The rest comes from community organizations, fundraisers, and donors like you. That is why your support is absolutely critical at this time. Your end-of-year gift to the Veterans’ Place—in any amount—will put us one step closer to fulfilling our mission of making sure that no veteran is left behind.

So please, in this season of giving, remember our homeless veterans. We do not know them all, but we owe them all.

Donations can be made on our website, vermontveteransplace.org (use the “Donate” button at the top right of the home page), on our page, or by mailing your tax-deductible contribution to 220 Vine St., Northfield, VT 05663. For tax purposes, the agency's 501(c)(3) tax identification number is 26-1458295.

Wishing you a joyous and peaceful holiday season, and a happy, healthy new year!
From all of us at the Veterans’ Place.

The night before.......

On this day... 19 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. #AlwaysRemember #NeverForget #NYPD #FDNY #NYC #ArmedForces #TheDayBefore

Just an FYI. During the current situation, for the safety of our residents, Veterans' Place is not allowing any outside visitors until we feel it is safe to do so. If you have donations to leave at the house you may still do so. You may call ahead and we can meet you outside of you may just leave the donation on the front porch with you name and address so we know who to thank. Thank you all for all your support!
