Monthly Hive Drive & DIY Project

This February, let’s show some love to our veterans! Join us in supporting our partner Jesse Brown VA Medial Center by participating in this month’s DIY Family Project or Hive Drive.

The Jesse Brown VAMC has a 200-bed acute care facility and four community based outpatient clinics. The center provides care to the 62,000 registered veterans that reside in the city of Chicago and neighboring counties.

DIY Family Project
In Chicago, approximately 1,000 veterans are homeless on any given night. Work with your family to make hygiene kits to provide to basic comfort and care to homeless veterans. Collect trial/hotel sized items (such as too brushes, shampoo, lip balm) and pack your items in gallon sized zip-loc bags. Include a handmade note to make our donation personal.


Hive Drive
Host a clothing drive with your school, group or neighbors! Help collect men’s shoes, socks, pants and winter outerwear for the Jesse Brown VAMC Voluntary Service which provides clothing to 300-400 veterans each month.
