Supporting Hoosier Veterans

The CLC October collection is sponsored by CLC Military Ministry and is designated for HVAF (Helping Veterans and Families) located in downtown Indy. This organization helps veterans, including homeless veterans, by providing basic needs. Due to the pandemic and their current situation, there is a great need for canned food, men’s underwear, and hygiene items.

Canned food most needed are:

  • canned vegetables (green beans, corn, peas, sweet potatoes)
  • condensed or ready-to-eat soup
  • canned meat (chicken, Spam, salmon)
  • canned pasta (ravioli, Beefaroni, chili)

Requested clothing includes (all sized):

  • men’s boxers and boxer briefs (all sizes)
  • polo shirts and undershirts, both white and color

Hygiene items needed:

  • toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • deodorant
  • body wipes
  • bar soap
  • razors and shaving cream

For a printable shopping list, CLICK HERE, or pick up a list of these items at the wooden collections bin at all 3 locations. Please have donated items to church by Sunday, Nov. 1 (or donate online - see below). Thank you for supporting CLC's Military Ministry and our local veterans.
