THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Our mission at MACV is to End Veteran Homelessness and we do this through the support of individuals, community partners, and donors just like you. This month, MACV closed our annual campaign strong, but our mission is not over. Veterans in Minnesota are still homeless and we house them one at a time through your financial support. MACV is also at the forefront of preventing veteran homelessness in Minnesota. As we move into 2018, we ask for your continued support by considering MACV as your charitable organization on Amazon Smile, further fundraising and donation opportunities, and reaching out to us directly for more information.

MACV believes in community and we will End Veteran Homelessness together.

To all of our supporters, on behalf of all of us at MACV, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
