Homeless Veterans Donation Week
Buttafleye Ministry is collecting donations of hygiene products for bags being distributed to homeless veterans from Nov. 6-11. The homeless crisis is now a global pandemic. The homeless veterans and those at risk are left vulnerable and susceptible to danger and diseases.
From 2015 to 2019, the number of people experiencing homelessness in the Dallas area grew 44.4%, an increase largely driven by the rise of unsheltered homeless residents. Numbers of people in shelters and temporary housing have remained relatively stable in the same period.
The hunger rate has gone up
tremendously, leaving people
without an adequate amount of food and water. For additional information, visit www.Buttafleyeministry.org
