Staff from AmeriVet Securities teamed up with Team RWB once again to prepare meals for local homeless shelters with #hashtaglunchbagbk. This time, donations of feminine hygiene products were collected in conjunction with #happyperiod, an organization whose mission is to provide menstrual products to low-income and homeless individuals.
According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, 11% of the homeless adult population are veterans and 51% of individual homeless veterans have disabilities. Female veterans are the fastest growing segment of the homeless veteran population. At AmeriVet Securities, we are committed to helping address issues effecting the veteran community.
