Honor Independence Day
Celebrate July 4th with us!
Though we may be celebrating this year's 4th of July differently due to the pandemic, we can come together online to show our American pride and support for veterans!
The Veterans Site launched on March 1, 2011, with the mission of giving military veterans the support they need most. Since then, we have funded 824,467 meals for veterans in need. You have helped us give American veterans meals on their plates, vital supplies, and hope for the future.
You can show veterans they are not forgotten this holiday by funding care packs for homeless veterans and their pets, show support for veterans and their business ventures, or purchasing items from small U.S. businesses. Every purchase helps feed a veteran in need, and every action you take makes a difference. On this page you can explore numerous ways to come together with others like you in the GreaterGood community to make a change. You can also subscribe to our emails for other ways to help veterans.
Help Homeless Veterans & Their Pets
Tragically, homelessness is a major problem affecting America’s veterans. Due to a lack of affordable housing, limited post-service job opportunities, and inadequate medical care, tens of thousands of men and women who once heroically protected our country now find themselves in poverty. Help make a difference.
Support Small U.S. Businesses
We are proud to offer products sold by small U.S. businesses. These businesses support their local economies, communities and neighborhoods. They help foster innovation and competition in their field. Due to Covid-19, most are feeling a financial strain right now and are worried about the future. Let’s show them our support!

Support Veterans and Their Business Ventures
It is our veterans who have made freedom a reality for all of us who enjoy it today. That's why we need to encourage the business ventures of those who have fought for our country. Veterans have sacrificed their lives to keep us safe— and when they return, it's our responsibility to make sure we're promoting their well being.
