WASHINGTON, DC (December 13, 2018) /For immediate release/ — OSD Washington, DC has collected more than 150 items to help homeless Veterans this winter. They began the winter clothing drive in September. Each month they have collected items to ensure that those in need are equipped with proper clothing for the harsh DC winter.  

The items were donated to Veterans On The Rise, a local nonprofit in DC which supports Veterans who have become homeless. Washington, DC Chapter Leader Robert Marshal said, “I am overjoyed with the support we received from the community. We collected over 150 items that went to supporting homeless veterans in DC. This is why I love OSD, it allows for Veterans to support and take care of our own.”

OSD Chapters are the backbone of our local outreach. Chapters are made up of groups of active duty members, veterans, family members and civilian supporters devoted to giving back at the community level. OSD chapters host various social, professional, and service related events each month. Service events allow Chapters the chance to give back in a meaningful way. Through service, Chapters are able to have a lasting and positive impact in their communities. To date, OSD Chapters have contributed tens of thousands of volunteer hours. Additionally, the camaraderie built through these events create bonds which last a lifetime.
