Part 1: Fundraising Drive Event
Project Name: "Operation Elevate" Drive for Homeless Veterans
Date of Event: June 22nd, 2019
Proposed Venue: Jackson Housing Authority
The purpose of this event is to bring forth awareness and provide assistance through the
fundraising drive "Operation Elevate" for Homeless Veterans. The Homeless Urban
Development and VA Supportive Housing seeks help for the veteran’s necessities in hosting the
event which is contributory to the sustainability of the organization that will greatly assist in a
continuous rendering of the needed development services of the beneficiaries.
Members of the service that were detailed to war zones fighting for the country should have
holistic life after the serving. Unfortunately, after defending the country and returning to the
civilian life living a normal life became a struggle for some of them especially in securing good,
stable, and quality housing. Based on a 2010 report of Green Doors, on any given night, there are
approximately 643,067 people experiencing homelessness in America. Moreover, 12% of those
people consist of veterans. This is due to social isolation, poverty, lack of housing programs as
well as little support from the community and government.
The program proposed designed to overcome the homelessness of the veterans and assist them to
start again and begin a new life as stabled civilian. This also aims to provide opportunities for the
veterans to obtain other necessities that are needed in transferring to their new house and be able
to maintain self-sufficiency. It also intends to provide a safe place and address their other needs
like financial assistance, education, and health programs. It will offer activities that will meet
their needs such as; fitness programs, cultural programs, workshops, or outings that will provide
them a decent and healthy living with less worry.
This event aims to showcase the beneficial practices or prevent the homelessness of the veterans.
The stakeholders plan to participate in the events that will support this cause by contributing,
collecting, and distributing furniture and other essentials that are most needed by the Veterans
who are moving into their new house and make it their home.
Moreover, this also intends to educate the community of the organization’s aspirations behind
the services rendered in helping the homeless veterans promoting the societal interest and the
awareness of the HUD-VASH program ethics which is based in the constitution of the country.
The organization can only render the services by means of the supports from different charitable
institutions, private donors in both international or local. We are responsible for 25 homeless
veterans whom we currently help to provide home and other necessities that they need to live a
better and meaningful life in their dawning remaining years.
To achieve the objectives, we plan this fundraising event that will not only bring forth awareness
but collaboration of many different organizations with similar purpose. Our organization believes
that through our most benevolent stakeholders together with the community this event will
greatly benefit the homeless veterans and everything will be appreciated in taking the
responsibility to uplift their lives and in supporting the goals that we are advocating for.
Local artists and performers will be invited to showcase their talents while raising awareness and
potential donations for the cause.
