$115

Story

During week 2 of the Taylor Auto Games 2020, Taylor Hyundai of Toledo and Taylor Cadillac are raising funds to benefit Veterans Matter -- National Homeless Veterans Housing Program.  Right now, there are more than 37,000 veterans on the streets of our nation. . . homeless and on their knees praying for a home that you can provide, simply by making a donation of any amount to support our Veterans Matter Charity Fundraiser

About Veterans Matter:  

 Our mission is simple, house as many veterans as we can, as fast as we can. 

In 2012, Veterans Matter was launched in Toledo to house 35 local veterans and expanded nationally with the support of Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, John Mellencamp, and Mitch Albom, who wanted to help house veterans in their home states. 

Veterans Matter – National Homeless Veterans Housing Program is a systems-level non-profit organization that works directly with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and local VA homeless programs to provide rental deposits and the veteran’s portion of the first month’s rent for chronically homeless veterans engaged in the HUD-VASH program. Using evidenced-based best practices, Veterans Matter has now housed 4,000 veterans and over 1,400 veteran’s children in 25 states. 

It takes $750 on average for us to house a veteran in a home for the brave in the land of the free! EVERY dollar we deploy results in another veteran housed in a long-term housing program with a 91% success rate keeping them housed. This means your donation and fundraising efforts, large or small, will result in another veteran or veteran family housed, every time! Visit veteransmatter.org for more information.
