Thank you Barre Elk’s Lodge! Your continued support and household donations for our transitioning Veterans makes a huge impact in their next exciting journey.

Exalted Ruler Todd Benoit and trustee Frank Hotaling delivered $1750 worth of items to The Veterans Place in Northfield. These household items will replenish a storage room that Veterans shop from when transitioning into their own apartments. This donation was made possible thanks to the Elks National Foundation Beacon grant. This is our 8th year supporting The Veterans' Place.

The Veterans' Place is Vermont's point of contact for this GREAT Mission to provide boots and socks to all our homeless Veterans. I will be reaching out to get Veterans names and sizes in the near future, I will keep posting up dates on this Mission and when you can contact me if you have a homeless Veteran who needs boots and socks.

The crew at General Needs is excited for the “1342 Mission – Boot Project recognizing the 22 per day”. Our goal is to help veterans in need and bring awareness regarding the issue of 22 veteran suicides per day. We also look forward to meeting with you in November or December and dropping off boots and socks.
I wanted to share the following story with you. Stories like this are the reason we are all so dedicated at General Needs Ltd. to helping veterans in need (We are 100% volunteer). General Needs volunteer Margaret Bender delivered 21 backpacks (pic below) to veterans in need in Islip. One of the veterans asked if he was getting a backpack. When he was told yes he smiled and said “Great, this is going to be so much better than using a plastic bag to bring my stuff to work.”
Additionally, I do have one small request. Follow General Needs Ltd. on Facebook so you can see the work we are doing and also because we will be posting updates about the 1342 Mission on our page. Also, encourage your friends to follow us on Facebook so people can see the great work being done by General Needs. Thank you!!!!

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.

Thank you Lenny Couture and CVMA 26-2 for your support in the Gingerbread House Raffle!
