Chicago Operation: Help-a-Hero

In September of 2015 concerned citizens from the Chicago Park District, Jesse Brown VA Medical Center, and Alderman Matt O'Shea of the 19th Ward got together in a project initiated by Vietnam Veteran Joe Palmer to collect needed Move-in-Essential for Veterans who were exiting homelessness.

Four years later this project has become part of the Chicago landscape with program donations totaling more than 500,000 needed items.
