We’re so happy for Donald (USAF) and his daughter to finally have their own home! Beds, blankets, pillows and sheets arriving today!
As a Veteran who has met Julie and seen first hand how hard she and her team work to help Vets, I truly believe this has to be the best group of people out there. My wife and I were in a very bad spot when we met, but with Julie and the teams help we are now doing OK. At one time we had nothing now we have a bed that helps not only me sleep but my wife also, I now have jeans to wear, bedding that was picked with the colors my wife and I like. It’s not just all this, she is a lady who will sit and listen to what you have to say. She will talk to you not about you, I never heard her say we should have done things some other way, or we should have planed for what was coming. There is just so much she and the team did for us that we are so thankful for. When we go to bed at night trust me, the Veteran Support Alliance team and all who help them are in our prayers. We have nothing but respect for all of them. Thanks to all who cared enough to help. Jerry & Debbie
“Thank you so much for everything! I have not had such an amazing bed in a really long time! It even has a pillow top! I feel like Goldilocks! Not too hard, its not too soft! Just right!” This was our Veteran’s thank you email to Imagine upon receiving her new bed, blankets and sheets. We are so fortunate to be able to continue providing new beds to so many Veterans throughout Massachusetts! With this move, our support has now grown to the MA North Shore!
Congratulations to Brian, an Army Veteran who moved into his own home in Worcester this month! We have sent a full move-in kit an grocery gift card to get him started in his new home! No more sleeping on the floor, he finally got his bed and we had were able to provide his pillow, sheets and blankets in his favorite color blue!
The Imagine team was happy to support John with moving into his own home after many years. Thanks to the support from a generous donor who provided his move-in kit, John was delivered everything he needed to make his house a home. We also provided John a new bed which he very much enjoys. Congratulations John, we are delighted to support a Hero in our hometown!
Word continues to spread about the great work we are doing to support our Veterans. Today we received a request to help Carlos with moving out of homelessness after 16 months! He just moved into his own place in Quincy and is so very happy! Congratulations Carlos!
