For our site visitors who aren’t as social as we are – at least, not following us on Twitter or Facebook – here are some highlights from the past week on social media from Veterans Matter.

We…

…honored the life and work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by sharing this image and quote:

…promoted one of our latest blog posts, How House Keys Unlock New Starts for Vets, which talks about the effectiveness of Housing First.

…celebrated #WomensDay (more commonly known as Wednesday) by recognizing the bravery of the female pilots of WWII. You can read about them in Yankee Doodle Gals by Amy Nathan. (Don’t forget to choose ‘1matters Org’ as your charity on Amazon Smile – any purchases you make there don’t cost your more, but they help support us!)

…thanked our sponsors and made a last call for more to support #Dine419, a week-long to benefit Veterans Matter by eating at local restaurants in Toledo. Initiated by Toledo Free Press, presented by Hollywood Casino, sponsored by Bottomline Ink and Toledo.com, and hosted at lots of great Toledo eateries!

…congratulated celebrity supporter John Mellencamp on the kick-off of his new tour.

…shared cool stories about formerly homeless veterans giving back to their brothers and sisters in need.

…posted the latest Veterans Housed to Date info – now up to 523 veterans/veteran families + 79 spouses + 213 children = 815 people off the streets!
