Honoring Veterans

Today is Veteran’s Day. It is a very important day for showing appreciation to members of our military. If you’re looking for ways to honor the veterans in your life or would like to contribute to all veterans, we’ve listed some suggestions for you.


  1.  Show up
    Many communities have Veterans Day parades, ceremonies or picnics. Attend those events and cheer on and thank our veterans. Ask them about their service. Just listen and give your full attention.
  2.  Write
    Send a letter to a veteran recognizing them on Veterans Day.
  3. Volunteer
    Take time today and volunteer at an organization for veterans.
  4. Donate
    There are many organizations for veterans you can donate to, including our partners, The Military Order of the Purple Heart, The American Red Cross and the National Federation of the Blind.

GreenDrop makes it easy to donate to these organizations by offering free home pickups and convenient clothing and drop-off locations. As always GreenDrop will provide a tax receipt from the charity of the donor’s choosing.

Whether you’re volunteering, writing or donating today it doesn’t matter as long as you are supporting our veterans. What other ways do you show support for our veterans?
