·       $50 = one cell phone with one month of service to give a veteran the opportunity to look for a job.

·       $100 = new eye glasses for a veteran who is struggling to make ends meet.

·       $250 = a veteran’s car repair bill so he can drive to work and hold down a much-need job in the holiday season.

·       $500 = assist with paying the rent or mortgage for a veteran and help avoid eviction during the holidays.
