'G.I.V.E.' Back to Paralyzed Veterans This Summer

Paralyzed Veterans' G.I.V.E. Clothing Donation Program Now Accepting Items in Seattle and Tacoma

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - June 15, 2016) - Paralyzed Veterans of America's clothing donation program, G.I.V.E., is now available to Seattle and Tacoma area residents who are looking for a way to give back and show their support for veterans. The G.I.V.E program, which stands for 'Goods Inspiring Veterans Everywhere' accepts clothing, shoes, hats, belts and other household items for donation. One hundred percent of proceeds go toward supporting programs and services that are provided free to veterans by Paralyzed Veterans of America and its 34 chapters across the country.

"The G.I.V.E. program provides a great opportunity for those who are looking for a way to give back and support our veterans but may not be able to make a financial contribution at this time," said Tom Bungert, president of the Northwest Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans.

"By donating to the G.I.V.E program, you are directly helping us improve the lives of some of the most catastrophically disabled veterans that Paralyzed Veterans Northwest Chapter and our national office represent."

G.I.V.E. helps support the many men and women who have served and sacrificed for our freedom. The funds raised from the program help provide veterans access to free programs that provide employment assistance, benefits assistance, advocacy and more.

Paralyzed Veterans is looking for community partners to join the effort and help expand the program's reach by hosting a clothing donation box year-round at their local business or storefront. For more information on how to become a partner, schedule a free pick up or to find your nearest drop box location, please visit www.pva.org/GIVEgoods.
