Operation Help A Hero

There are hundreds of homeless Veterans in Chicago. The City of Chicago is working hard to create a system where any episode of homelessness is rare and brief through the End Veterans Homelessness Initiative (EVHI). As we house these veterans, the transition from shelter or transitional housing to permanent housing, means many veterans do not have basic items to set up a home. Mayor Lightfoot, the City Council, and Jewel-Osco are joining together in the month of June to help homeless Veterans in Chicago by creating move-in kits. Please help by donating new household items.

The items that are most needed are:

PERSONAL HYGIENE

  • Bath Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Razor
  • Shaving Cream
  • Deodorant
  • Combs
  • Hair Brush
  • Nail Clipper
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush

KITCHEN & CLEANING

  • Kitchen Trash Can
  • (Plastic)
  • Windex
  • Pine Sol
  • Dishwashing Liquid
  • Dishcloth
  • Sponge
  • Mop
  • Bucket
  • Broom
  • Dustpan
  • Paper Towels

BATHROOM & MISCELLANEOUS

  • Toilet Paper (4 or 6 pack)
  • Plunger
  • Toilet Brush
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaner
  • Bath Towels (2)
  • Wash Cloth
  • Smoke Detector
  • Battery
  • Flashlight w/Batteries
  • Garbage Bags
  • Laundry Basket

*ONLY NEW, STORE BOUGHT ITEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
