Campaign for Homeless Veterans
That's why I'm writing today. Old Savannah City Mission is reaching out to
homeless veterans right here in our community
. I believe it is our responsibility to
provide
food, shelter, recovery services, and spiritual nourishment for
these brave souls.

Consider the story of one man
I'll call "William." He served five tours in Iraq and
Afghanistan. Combat was terrifying: a friend offered him a pill to "relax."
"I had no idea it was meth," William remembers. "I was instantly hooked."

When he returned home, he married his sweetheart and they had a child. He kept
his addiction a secret . . . until he started stealing from family members to support
his habit. Then everything fell apart.
"I was alone and scared, with nowhere to turn." he says. A pastor recommended
the Mission. In time, William got sober, repaired broken relationships, and turned
his life around.

"The Mission saves lives," Williams says. "It saved mine."

But William is not alone. Every day, veterans come through our doors in urgent
need of help. That's why your support is so important.

If it's possible, please give a generous donation, so homelessness will not become
another price of serving our country.

Thank you, and God bless you.

Dear Friend,

Next time you see a homeless person in Savannah,
please consider this:

About one out of every ten people on the street is
a veteran.

Many served in Afghanistan or Iraq (or both). Many are
suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
and other disabilities. Some are so haunted by the
horrors of battle that they've turned to drugs or alcohol
to escape. Others feel like fish out of water and are
struggling just to fit back into society.

And many who need help simply aren't getting it.
Show a veteran you care!
