Dear Friends and Community Partners,
Every year in Guilford County there are hundreds of veterans that experience homelessness. It’s the Servant Center’s mission to empower the homeless and disabled, particularly veterans, to become independent, contributing members of our community. According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, one in four homeless people are veterans, forty-five percent suffer from mental illness, and half suffer from substance abuse problems. Our comprehensive programs address these and other mental health and medical conditions, provide both transitional and permanent housing, as well as disability assistance and case management.
By supporting our annual fundraiser, Salute!, you will be giving veterans a second chance. We hope that you will join us on April 8th, 2017 from 6:00- 10:00 pm at the Elks Lodge of Greensboro for this year’s event: Salute! Celebrating North Carolina’s Military Heroes. This fundraiser is sure to provide an evening of entertainment, while also raising necessary funds to continue the work we do for the homeless and disabled.
Please consider sponsoring Salute! with a cash, or in-kind donation of services, and we really hope you will also join us at the event. We look forward to sharing this evening with you as we celebrate our hometown military heroes. Click here to download the sponsorship package.
