Hi I work for the VA Hospital and due to COVID we can’t have Christmas gatherings unless it’s meals individually wrapped.

Does anyone know a company that could provide meals?

Help Bring Dad Home
I’m reaching out to see if I can find some help for my parents. I’m trying to find assistance in renovating their home. As of right now their home is not built to accommodate wheel chair access to certain areas of the house. Places like the bathroom or shower, bedroom to get into bed and wheelchair access into the house.
Let me start by talking a little bit about their certain situation. My father is a Veteran and both him and my mother are on a fixed income. They do not have the financial means to hire people to help renovate their home so that my father can come home. Right now, he is in a facility to help assist him after having a procedure done. He just recently had his right foot and partial leg amputated. So now until their home can be renovated to accommodate his wheelchair and give him full access to a bathroom he has to stay in a long-term home. With both of them going through different types of procedure in the last few years they feel as if they can’t catch a break. In August 2017 Hurricane Harvey hit. Although the hurricane didn’t hit their home directly, the flood waters did. They had around 4 feet of water come into their home and changed their lives. The good news is that they were not in the house when it flooded and were in fact staying with me before the water invaded their home. It took a while before any of us could get to their house to assess the flood damage and decide what the next action would be. After discovering that not much could be saved, they moved forward. They started to reach out to try and find someone to help them rebuild. Unfortunately, they received bad contact information from someone they thought they could trust. They hired a man who they were referred to by a nurse from the VA hospital. They had pulled all of their savings to pay this man to rebuild their home. They were one of the many victims of this guys scam. After leaving the job half done, this man disappeared with all of their money and a lot of my father’s tools. A lot of this man’s crew didn’t even get paid for their work as well. In the end, they lost $30,000, tools and were left with a home that was not livable. Even after all of this they still pushed onward to achieve their goal of getting back into their home. They were able to get help from the VA to build ramps so it would be easier for my father to get into the home. At this time, he was able to walk short distances to get around. In November 2018 they were able to move back into their home. They were so happy to be able to celebrate Christmas in their own home. Now jumping into 2020, which has been a world turned upside down for everyone, they have come to another road block. They never fully recovered financially from the scam in 2018, but they never let that hold them back. Now they need help so that my father can come home. They have had thoughts about an add-on to their house. That way my father could have his own room and bathroom that is made for his needs. Something that will give him easy access to using the restroom, taking a shower and getting in and out of bed. Any help is greatly appreciated.

It’s always good to see companies giving back to their communities & customers. Nice!
Thanks for sharing this, I really like that some of these companies were started by vets themselves.
Love these products and the work that everyone does for such great causes! I am here to ask for help from our Veteran loving community, we have a new foundation that needs help and support. The Strongpoint Theinert Ranch and Joseph J Theinert Memorial Fund. The Ranch is based out of New Mexico and is currently hosting 2-3 Veteran Retreats per year. They are working on the support system of all veterans and helping them reconnect. These Retreats have been rewarding and so helpful to those that have participated. The Ranch is looking for sponsors. This can be done in so many ways sponsoring the trip of a veteran or donating some items that can be used for the Retreats. Please help by just passing the word. You can find more information at http://www.strongpointtheinert.org Thank You
Hi guys! Had to jump in here … I work with an amazing company that is all about helping veterans … Hero Clean is the first ever home cleaning line scientifically formulated to handle guys unique sweat, stains, odor and messes – and gives 7% of the profit from every bottle to support IAVA- Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Products are tested by active military and veterans for effectiveness and can handle even the stinkiest, sweatiest dirtiest clothes and gear. Hero Clean is now available at Target, Jet.com, Amazon.com and will be coming to exchanges across the US soon! It doesn’t matter where you purchase Hero Clean – every purchase helps our veterans!
It’s so nice that these companies give back to the people who have served out country! I always like to see companies help others.
It’s nice to know that these companies are out there, finding a way to give back. I’ll keep that in mind when I’m shopping for the things they manufacture.
although some of these wonderful companies have stated what organization they are supporting PLEASE BEWARE of what organization is being supported. Most of these groups do great things for our vets yet others are nothing more than a for profit. Sadly they raise tons of money for our vets with our vets seeing little in return.
I think the organization Clif bar chose as a backer is absolutely awesome! YET………..”Clif Bar, a company that manufactures MOST of it’s snack and energy bars in the US”. How are we to know which ones besides looking at each one and every time when purchasing? Where are the “others” made at?
This is nice to know. I like knowing when a business is supporting veterans or any worthwhile cause, for that matter.
I love this article. With so many options for different products, it gets hard to know which companies are doing good things. I try to use my dollars responsibly and am careful to find companies that support causes that are close to my heart. These are awesome companies and I look forward to using their services/products in the near future! Thanks to them for their support.
Starbucks is selling a special Veterans Starbucks card. If you buy one, they will donate $5 to veterans’ organizations. They also have more resources to check out at starbucks.com/veterans
Oscar Mike makes clothing and gear made partially by disabled vets. They support wheelchair basketball for vets and many positive events for vets.
I love Snap on Tools and Clif Bar! The others I haven’t heard of before, but I want to check them out! What could be better than made in USA? Also supporting veterans. Good finds!
GREAT list! I was unfamiliar with a few of these brands, but will definitely try them.
This is a great post!!! Love this!!!
I’ve worked at a VA Hospital for 17 years and the employees have hosted a fundraiser by having a silent auction for the past 27 years to benefit needy veterans during the holiday season. We have such a hard time getting donations from businesses that say they support Veterans, it’s grueling;(
I have been drinking Heroes vodka for the past few years and am also a native Tennessean. Travis McVey, the Founder, helps out the community in a multitude of ways and the vodka is really good. I also support the Clif bars. I think it’s important to support local businesses and restaurants and it makes me feel good to do my part. Too many jobs have been and are BEING sent overseas. If we all support our fellow American, this could get back to the roots why it was established. Thank you vets!
I am happy to see Clif Bar on this list, I will continue to purchase Clif Bar protein bars. Thank you for sharing this post.
I think it’s great that these companies support veterans, after all if it wasn’t for our soldiers that are serving and served we wouldn’t be in a country that allows us the freedoms that other countries don’t have!!!

3. Everyday Veterans & Active Duty Military Personnel get 10% off their entire purchase at the Made In America Store.
Looking to start my own CSA and was wonderinghow to get ahold of clif bar.
Hi Daniel! If you are a veteran, you can contact the Farmer Veteran Coalition and see if they can assist you in any way- this link is helpful: http://www.farmvetco.org/our-resources. If you are looking to apply for a grant from the Clif Bar Family Foundation, this link has the info on that: http://www.clifbarfamilyfoundation.org.
Best of luck!
Isn’t Nine Line Apparel a company for vets run by vets?
I am so glad these companies support Veterans, it is so important. I have purchased from a few of these like Topricin and CLiff Bars and will continue to support them.
I had no idea that Clif Bar supported veterans! Makes me like them even more 🙂
