Special bags were made for Veteran’s Day and they were stuffed with food. The Hollywood Food Coalition has hundreds of folks donating their time to help veterans, homeless, and other poor folks through this pandemic. Delivery to the Drop Zone at the V.A. by Uncle Paulie and Miss Julie. Homeless veterans are camped around the VA and on the grass of the property sleeping in tents. Meanwhile, the V.A. has several empty buildings on the property that could be used to house veterans.

The school kids of Los Angeles, working with the West Hollywood Food Coalition made over 3,000 sandwich bags for Memorial Weekend. We helped to distribute by taking a portion of the bags out to the Westwood Veteran’s Administration encampment. There are additional thousands of veterans living under bridges and on the streets of Los Angeles in other places. We implore the VA to provide some basic sanitary equipment here. It would be good to move them all onto the lawn, get bathrooms, showers, wash stations set up. Provide trash service and other basic necessities. Good citizens have stepped up and donated large tents for the veterans to live in until some housing becomes available. Please share this information and contact the VA and ask them to get off the dime had help these folks out.
