Donation Drive To Support Homeless Veterans


NEW ORLEANS — Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System will be collecting donations to support homeless Veterans from 7 to 11:00 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, September 24 through October 17.

We are looking for nonperishable food items, toiletries, blankets, new men’s and women’s undergarments, and gently used men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, and backpacks. 

“All of the donations we receive will go to Veterans during our annual Stand Down for Homeless Veterans scheduled for October 27 at the Veterans medical center,” said Medical Center Director Fernando O. Rivera. “On this day, we’ll be completing medical screenings, providing hot meals, clothing and other resources for those who need it. We can’t do it alone – it takes many partners in the community to pull this event together for our nation’s heroes.”

If you are interested in helping our homeless Veterans by volunteering at this year’s Stand Down, please contact Cynthia White in Voluntary Service at or call 504-507-2033 for more information.
