Holiday Drive for Milwaukee’s Homeless Veterans

Posted: December 3, 2013

Colectivo is proud to support this year’s Holiday Drive to benefit the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative!

Help homeless veterans this holiday season by donating your loyalty points. With the gift of 1,200 loyalty points we’ll give a toothbrush or toothpaste to the Holiday Drive benefitting the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative! Click here to log in and donate now. 

MHVI provides the services that homeless and at-risk veterans need to reach and maintain their highest level of independence. Their motto is, “We don’t leave our wounded behind,” and to that end, we are enlisting the help of our wonderful co-workers and customers to support those who have served.

According to the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative website: “In Milwaukee, one of every four homeless persons is a veteran, and 300 to 400 veterans are homeless on any given day. Over the course of a year, four times that many are homeless for a time. An additional 5,500 local veterans are classified as at risk, because they are living below the poverty line or spending more than half of their incomes on housing.”

Through Dec. 18, all Milwaukee-area Colectivo cafes will be hosting a drive to benefit Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative. Look for collection bins and bring in your donations no later than December 17. Please consider supporting this campaign and encourage others to do so as well! Check out the wishlist below or visit the MHVI website for more info. Thanks!
