BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Veterans Walmart, Volunteers of America South Central Louisiana and LSU alumni are honoring veterans in the capital city by hosting a supply drive for Baton Rouge homeless veterans.
Four participating Walmart locations in Baton Rouge will be accepting household goods for veterans transitioning from homelessness to housing.
Walmart is a huge supporter in pushing this incentive and supporting veterans in need of more resources. Walmart gave a $15,000 grant to Volunteers of America South Central Louisiana and a $10,000 grant to the LSU Alumni Association. Organizers say it’s the little things that makes a big difference, and they are confident veterans will appreciate this.
“I enlisted when I was young. So, to give back to the veterans and to show them how much we appreciate them is a great, big deal for us, especially for us. A cause that will mark the small things as matters as small things. Just your appreciation, just to show them that you care goes a long way,” said Janice Frank, Walmart’s veteran and associate.
The following Walmart locations will be accepting donations: 3132 College Drive, 9350 Cortana Place, 10550 Burbank Drive, and 10606 North Mall Drive.
