The City of Titusville, Florida / Police / NewsPolice Collect Boots for Homeless Veterans
Titusville Police Officers collected gently worn boots and shoes and donated them to the National Veteran Homeless Support (NVHS) to distribute to local veterans in need.
George Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of NVHS, accepted the boots on Friday July 14th 2017 at the Titusville Police Department.
The boot drive ran from June 1st 2017 to July 4th 2017 and drop off locations included the Titusville Police Department, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Barbara Pill Facility and all Titusville Fire Stations.
The boot drive was the brainchild of Titusville Police Department’s Sergeant T.J. Wright.
“Many first responders have extra pairs of boots that are similar to the military issued boots that are often worn by veterans”, said Sergeant Wright. “This was the perfect opportunity to give back to those who have served our country so bravely”, added Wright.
