7th Annual Veterans Day Care Package Drive

Donate to the Troops

Nov. 9-10, 2023

Join this effort to show our support to Veterans in our community who have defended our freedom and are currently experiencing homelessness.

The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, in partnership with the Staff Advisory Council, is excited to partner with local non-profit organization, Moving Veterans Forward, whose mission is dedicated to helping homeless veterans in Iowa and Nebraska get placed in homes. Their main goal is to provide veterans with a boost to assist them in becoming more self-sufficient. More information can be found about Moving Veterans Forward at
