Did you know there are an estimated 64,000 homeless veterans in the United States? Operation Winter Weather will make a dent in that extreme statistic. The Loveland High School National Honor Society and the My GI Foundation will be collecting new winter gear from anyone and everyone in the Tiger Nation until December 15th, to donate to the VA Medical Center Homeless Care Unit. For generously donating hats, gloves, thermal socks, etc., our students and faculty will earn a BOGO "Be My Guest" card from Larosa's Pizza and with the purchase of a medium pizza will be able to pick extra menu items of their choice. See Mr. Thomas or Mrs. Dell with your donation and to receive your FREE "Be My Guest" card. Your small gesture will make a big impact.

Operation Winter Weather was a monumental success. Thanks to the Loveland High School National Honor Society and LaRosa's Pizza we collected over 1,000 items with a retail value of $7,190 dollars. Our haul went a long way towards filling up storage space for homeless veterans at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center.

Thank You Senator

Senator Joe Uecker took me to lunch when I was fourteen to discuss high level military service and a career in government service. He is a regular speaker at My GI Foundation banquets and is always ready to lend a hand to support my philanthropy and service to veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
