After Black Friday & Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back to your community. Join Burbank Housing Corporation (BHC) in the #GivingTuesday Movement by donating to our campaign!
BHC’s #GivingTuesday Campaign will benefit the lives of the 11 formerly homeless veterans currently living in BHC’s Burbank Veteran Bungalows. Our goal is to create an outdoor common space for BHC Veterans to enjoy!
Thanks to early donations, BHC has already reached 37% of our fundraising goal. We still have a long way to go but we can’t get there without your help!
Burbank Veteran Bungalows
Our newly completed project is the Burbank Veteran Bungalows, an 11-unit property that provides permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless veterans. After years of living in cars and the street, 11 formerly homeless veterans have now been living in their new homes for months.
After opening the Burbank Veteran Bungalows, our veteran residents began requesting an outdoor sitting area where they could meet and continue to grow their friendships. Because there is no furnished common space at our veteran housing site, many of our residents sit out on their front steps just to interact with one another.
The requests from BHC Veterans motivated us to start our #GivingTuesday for BHC Veterans Campaign. Our $3000 goal will go toward purchasing patio furniture and providing a paved & shaded area at the Burbank Veteran Bungalows. You can help make our goal a reality!
A common outdoor space would provide an open area for socializing or simply taking in some fresh air. It will, most importantly, help them foster a strong sense of community. The Burbank Veteran Bungalows is a close-knit community and a common space will encourage BHC Veterans to build a support system for each other.
So far, we have raised over $1000 of our $3000 goal. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement today and to help and give back to BHC Veterans this November 29th.
How to Help
After facing so much adversity and overcoming so many obstacles, BHC Veterans deserve a supportive environment that they are proud to call their home. Shortly after the mass consumerism of Black Friday & Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for all of us to remember the goodwill of the holiday season.
Even if you are unable to donate, you can become our “fundraising ambassador” by sharing our #GivingTuesday Campaign with your friends & family. Simply by emailing, sharing on social media, or mentioning our fundraising efforts with your friends, your donation and/or involvement will have a bigger impact on the lives of BHC Veterans.
In the spirit of the holiday season, please give back to BHC Veterans this #GivingTuesday: https://www.crowdrise.com/givingtuesday-for-bhc-veterans
