Thanks To You: 10,000 Good Packs Distributed to Homeless People and Their Pets

Greater Good Charities’ Good Packs program just reached a huge milestone—10,000 packs distributed to homeless Americans and their pets! These packs contain essentials like blankets, food, hygiene items, dog toys and treats, along with other goods to ensure comfort and survival.

This is an especially meaningful milestone for us to reach as we approach Memorial Day, the national holiday honoring those who gave their life in service. 

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans reports that 11% of the adult homeless population are veterans. Unfortunately, these veterans often rely on donations and shelter amenities that may not always be enough. 

That’s why we’re proud to share that, due to the support of fantastic donors like you, we assembled, shipped, and delivered 10,000 Good Packs to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, and other organizations to help the homeless and their pets. And that’s just since our October program launch!

“[Our organization] is so grateful for this grant and all the donors that make it possible.  With these grants we are able to provide basic necessities that the homeless veterans and individuals we serve so desperately need… On behalf of our staff, board of directors, and the communities we serve we thank you.” Organization of Hope

We look forward to distributing another 10,000 Good Packs with your support.
