This year, over 200,000 American veterans won’t have a home to come to every night.
 
That’s way too high, and none of them deserve to be on the streets. Think about the risk that these brave people have taken for us. They sacrifice their time with their families, travel to a foreign country, and literally put their own life on the line just to make sure our country stays safe. If it wasn’t for them, the United States wouldn’t have the freedom and privileges that it has today.
 
This Veterans Day, Wilson Auto Group encourages you to give to these veterans, as a way of saying thanks. If you’re interested in contributing to these brave men and women, there’s a way you can help out.
 
The National Coalition for Homeless Shelters is an organization give resources to agencies that provide housing, food, health services, job training and much more to homeless veterans. These people work around the clock to make sure our veterans are taken care of, but they need help from those who are willing to contribute.
 
If you want to give back, click here and donate. Every amount counts, so don’t think the money you’re comfortable with donating won’t be enough. 
 
Even if a veteran does have a home, it doesn’t mean they’re healthy. 35 percent of veterans, specifically those who have fought in Iraq, deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This is a mental disease that develops after a person is exposed to a terrifying event where they inflicted harm or were harmed themselves. It causes anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. Most importantly, it prohibits that veteran from functioning properly when they return home.
 
If you’d like to help out with that, there’s an organization called Give An Hour, which gives former U.S. soldiers health services free of charge. To donate to their cause, click here.
 
There’s many more ways that you can help a veteran today. Please don’t hesitate to do so.
