WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — For the second straight year, Shoebuy.com has announced it will celebrate Veterans Day by making a donation to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans to help veteran families in crisis. NCHV organizations provide housing and critical services for nearly 150,000 homeless and at-risk veterans nationwide each year.
On Veterans Day, Shoebuy.com will contribute $1.00 of every sale to NCHV. “Last year, Shoebuy.com donated $10,000 to our organization,” said President and CEO John Driscoll. “We are honored by their focus on homeless veterans, and thank their customers for supporting our work.”
“We are fortunate enough to have a really terrific and caring membership base with so many that share our excitement to support such a terrific organization as NCHV,” says Scott Savitz, CEO of Shoebuy.com. “We look forward to increasing awareness amongst the hundreds of thousands of visitors who will come to Shoebuy on Veterans Day and are very happy we can show our appreciation in this way on such an important day.”
NCHV organizations, in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, have reduced veteran homelessness by nearly 50 percent in the last six years. Largely because of that success, President Barack Obama and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki have launched a Five-Year Plan to End Veteran Homelessness. For more information, go to: www.nchv.org.
