One of our Fifth grader classes has chosen to work on a service project this year that will assist homeless and formerly homeless veterans in Alameda and the greater Bay Area. They will be supporting the work of Operation Dignity.
Operation Dignity assists homeless veterans and their families. They provide emergency, transitional and permanent housing for homeless veterans in Alameda County. They also offer comprehensive support services, nutritious meals and a strong peer community. Their goal is to help veterans rediscover hope and provide the tools needed to live a self-sufficient and stable life. They are providing a hand up, not a hand out.
Operation Dignity is always in need of hygiene kits for their Mobile Outreach Unit as well as "starter sets" for veterans moving into transitional housing right here on Alameda Point. In order to help with this need we will be collecting unused small size hygiene products throughout the year. Soaps, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. can be given to any 5th grader or can be dropped into the basket near the Pod 4 door any time throughout this year. Be sure to ask your friends, neighbors, and family members to help as well. Thank you for your support!
