Operation Vanguard

11-14 NOV, 21

This will be our 8th annual Operation Vanguard. Last year your generosity aided over 200 Homeless Veterans and their families; as well as aiding over 150 at risk Veterans in need. 


What is Operation Vanguard

Operation Vanguard is a project to take members of our community who are dedicated to the plight of homelessness during the week after Veterans Day; and give them a taste of what it means to be without shelter and food.

How it Works


Every November for 3-5 days, we begin our homelessness challenge to raise funds to be used to serve Veterans in our community. It is also an event to raise awareness to the complexity and frequency of Veteran homelessness in Vigo County as well as surrounding areas.

We are seeking volunteers and sponsors for this event. If you would like to come out and take this challenge with us for one day or four; all are welcome.

How you can help


We are asking for any all donations from individuals and businesses in the area. Every penny counts when it goes towards those in need. We are accepting non-perishable food items, hygiene items, and monetary donations. We accept cash, check, and card. If you live far away but would still like to donate toward the cause; you can do so by contacting our office at 812-232-6305 or mailing your pledge to Operation Vanguard C/o Reach Services 1400 Hulman St Terre Haute, IN 47802 


Our goal this year is $40,000!




Please help us by finding those willing to pledge to the cause. We ask that each participant set their goal at $200 in sponsorships. When your sheet is filled out you can email it back to us or drop it off here in the office. No Veteran should be without a home, and it is our goal to ensure that no Veteran in the Wabash Valley goes without one. Please help us make this year's Operation Vanguard a successful one; for us and for those in need within the community.
