Philadelphia Veterans Comfort House to host numerous homeless vets on Thanskgiving and Christmas
Dozens of homeless US military veterans were served a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal with all the trimmings.
On Christmas Day, Dec. 25 starting at 7 AM, the PVCH will serve traditional holiday meals and also distribute presents to dozens of homeless veterans, starting at l l AM on at 4108 Baltimore Avenue in Philadelphia. The meals will continue throughout the day.
After the meals and present distribution, the PVCH will lead 'Operation Sleigh Ride', distributing hot holiday fare and presents of cold weather gear to veterans living on the streets of Philadelphia. Last year over five dozen vets were served here at both holidays. This year more homeless vets are expected to take part in the day's program.
Founded in 1994, the PVCH is a shelter for homeless vets and vets undergoing serious medical treatment at the local VA hospital. Supported by individuals, the VA Medical Center, the veterans community, unions, businesses, community groups and volunteers, the PVCH provides meals, shelter and support to our nation's military veterans in need.
"This is our third year serving meals to homeless vets on the holidays and giving out presents on Christmas Day. This is the second year for Operation Sleigh Ride., said PVCH Executive Director David Kamioner. "We're proud our House and our great volunteers can do so much for homeless US military vets during the holidays."
