          About This Event

          Summary

          On any given night, there are as many as 500 homeless veterans in Marion County, and this number is increasing. For a number of reasons, including multiple and sustained tours of duty, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are becoming homeless much more quickly than previous generations.

          Last year when two students from SPEA’s Public Affairs Student Association (PASA) started a food and clothing drive with only a few boxes to help the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation, more than 750 items were collected.

          This year’s drive already seems promising, as more than 15 IUPUI organizations and other community businesses have joined PASA in the efforts. So far, the IU McKinney School of Law, Public Policy Institute, IU Medical School, University Library, Bepko Learning Center, Wishard, IUPUI Student Veterans, Philanthropic Studies Society and many more are participating to collect items for the vets as winter approaches.  

          Now through November 16, donate:

          • Self-opening canned meat (tuna, chicken, SPAM, etc.)

          • Warm clothing (long johns, gloves, coats, hats, etc.)

          • Peanut butter

          • Self-opening soup

          • Macaroni & Cheese

          • Canned fruit

          • Pasta and sauce

          • Ramen noodles

          • Crackers

          • Canned chili mac or beef stew

          • Pork / baked beans

          • Canned vegetables

          • Bottled juice

          SPEA has collection boxes located on the second floor (orange space), third floor (SPEA staff office lobby) and fourth floor (outside secretary's office).

          Boxes are also located with these collaborating organizations:

          • American Legion Student Post 360

          • Bepko Learning Center

          • Elmore's Firearms & Accessories (520 N. State Road 135, Suite I, Greenwood)

          • Fred Astaire Dance Studio - Indianapolis North (in main ballroom)

          • Indiana University Medical School

          • Indiana University McKinney School of Law (each floor of law school)

          • Indiana University Nursing School

          • Indiana University Public Policy Institute (3rd floor near the elevator)

          • IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning

          • IUPUI Student Veterans

          • Occupational and Physical Therapy Club

          • Office of Intramural and Recreational Sports – Natatorium Basement (located in Natatorium Pro Shop)

          • Philanthropic Studies Society

          • University Library

          • Wishard Internal Medicine Residency Program

          At the end of the drive, PASA will prepare a pitch-in pre-Thanksgiving meal for the veterans at HVAF (964 N. Pennsylvania Street, Indianapolis) November 15, 5-7 p.m.

          The Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation (HVAF) is a nonprofit organization that provides transitional housing and basic needs to veterans and families.

          For information, or to donate cash or a check, arrange a large pickup or get a receipt, contact Erin Braun at eebraun@umail.iu.edu.
