JWV Holds Clothing Drive for U.S.VETS-Phoenix

Jewish War Veterans Post 619 members Elliott and Barbara Reiss

Jewish War Veterans (JWV) Post 619 accepts donations of clothing for male and female veterans experiencing homelessness, to be housed at U.S.VETS-Phoenix.

Their new site, which will hold 182 veterans, is anticipated to open in April of this year. It features four floors with elevators, a private wing to allow more safety for women, an indoor gym area, a kitchen, and a dining hall. The kitchen offers culinary classes training for any veteran wanting to go into the restaurant industry. It will have a drop-off center and a mini-store where veterans can have a shopping experience selecting clothes to get them started in the program. JWV thanks all those who donated to the clothing drive, which filled a truck, plus the speaker’s entire vehicle.
