Operation Michigan was started by writer Mitch Albom who has donated over $35,000 to house Michigan veterans. With additional funding raised and donated by Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Exchange Club service groups and generous corporations – over 325 homeless Michigan veterans have been housed to date.
Katy Perry’s continued support is credited with raising over $30,000, housing 35+ veterans in four states, and inspired the creation of Operation Mid-Atlantic which to date has housed a dozen veterans.
Also due in good measure to Mitch Albom’s participation, Michigan-based First Nation/Jordan Reses, a very compassionate company, has donated over $500,000 to house veterans in Michigan, Colorado, Texas, Mississippi, Indiana, Florida, North and South Carolina, and Tennessee.
Operation Texas was started by Dusty Hill of ZZ Top when he convened a group of businessmen and women in Houston. To date, this small group of heroes has donated over $360,000 and housed over 700 veterans!
The same day John Mellencamp became chair of Operation Indiana, we received an anonymous $37,000 donation. This and following support has led to nearly 200 Indiana veterans housed to date.
