MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee VA is helping a group of people who may not always get the support they need.
The VA hosted a 2K walk on Wednesday for homeless veterans.
People were asked to donate personal care items like toilet paper, shampoo, and toothpaste.
The VA says the transition from active duty military to veteran can be challenging.
“They come home, they’re at a time when they’re transitioning and it’s a difficult time for them, so they’re back to what is, this real world and it’s difficult for some of them to transition,” said Deb Stempinski with the Milwaukee VA.
The donations will benefit homeless veterans at Vets Place Central, a transitional housing complex on Milwaukee’s west side.
