These veterans gave up a significant part of their life to serve their country. We have always represented veterans and we wanted to give back.
DETROIT (PRWEB) May 30, 2018
Memorial Day is an emotional observance honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. In honor of Memorial Day and those who served, particularly those that are now homeless, attorney Joseph E. Houle, a managing partner of Levine Benjamin Law Firm, and the firm are providing bedding to twenty local veterans, helping them get back on their feet.
According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, approximately 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night. The Levine Benjamin Law Firm donations will be given to Volunteers of America Michigan. “These veterans gave up a significant part of their life to serve their country,” said Houle.
Volunteers of America Michigan provides help for the homeless, food for the hungry, employment and shelter for veterans, housing for poor seniors, and a helping hand for struggling families. It is a family of trained professionals, dedicated volunteers and community leaders, united with a cause of helping the most vulnerable among its neighbors.
Volunteers of America Michigan, the largest private provider to veterans throughout the state, also offers transitional housing to veterans. Bedding donations help Volunteers of America Michigan as they provide the veterans bedding when they arrive and then give them their bedding when they depart. Furthermore, veterans are in need of transportation, so bicycles are a big need and hard to come by.
“We have always represented veterans and we wanted to give back,” added attorney Gary W. Bimberg.

“Your gifts will help make a bed for a veteran who fought for our freedom. A veteran who not too long ago had no bed at all. Although a set of twin sheets may not seem significant, for a homeless veteran it means the safety, comfort and independence they have been searching for,” said Laura LeBlanc, Director of Development for Volunteers of America Michigan.
