Homeless veterans need us right now, more than ever. We are inviting the nation to take the 800 Challenge and end veteran homelessness this Holiday season.  Beginning November 11and running until December 30th, we are asking for donations to place our homeless military men and women into permanent housing.

The 800 Challenge is a fundraising effort created by 1-800-SWEEPER and is looking to raise $80,000 for the cause. 1-800-SWEEPER’s local Partner, Progressive Sweeping Contractors, will kick off the campaign in Toledo on Veterans Day, November 11th via a series of eblasts, social media posts and print media coverage.

Ben Steyer, Executive Director of 1-800-SWEEPER says, “giving back is paramount to our organization’s culture. We fully support our veterans and look forward to raising a lot of money for the 800 Challenge.”
