National Veterans Homeless Support Receives Record-Breaking Donation from Giant Recreation World

Winter Garden, Florida, 2/22/2024 – National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS) is thrilled to announce a record-breaking donation of $45,897 from Giant Recreation World, our largest corporate donor since 2011..

Giant Recreation World, a leading provider of RVs and camping essentials, presented the donation at their corporate office in Winter Garden on January 30, 2024. The funds were raised by the passionate members of the VIP Camping Club throughout the year, marking a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to supporting veterans in need.

“We are immensely proud of our VIP Camping Club members for their unwavering commitment to supporting our veterans,” said Mica Gratton, VIP Club Director at Giant Recreation World. “This donation to the National Veterans Homeless Support is a testament to the compassion and generosity of our community. It is an honor to be able to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those who have served our country.”

Jennifer Taylor, Chief Operations Officer at NVHS, commented on the timely nature of the donation, “This donation comes at a crucial time as the cost of financial support for our homelessness prevention program is nearly double what we planned for in our annual budget. The case load was so high that we had to bring on additional staff to handle the higher than expected volume of requests.”

“With the cost of rent in Central Florida increasing 19% since 2021 putting more veteran families at-risk of homelessness, we are so grateful for the continued support of organizations like Giant Recreation World and the VIP Camping Club. Their dedication to our cause has a profound impact on the lives of our veterans,” said George Taylor Jr., President of National Veterans Homeless Support.
