Mission Statement

Sweats for Vets provides sports-team hoodies (other items too) that offer both warmth and pride to homeless veterans across the Greater New England area by rallying many dedicated volunteers and generous donors.


How we got started...and still going!

A recent and comprehensive ARTICLE (12/20) in the MetroWest Daily News describing Sweats for Vets.


This important initiative came from the amazing work that my 6th grade

classes at A.M.S.A. do every year just before Christmas. Right around

Thanksgiving, my students start to collect winter hats, gloves and socks

for the homeless veterans shelter in Worcester. The hard work,

compassion, and dedication of my students have raised over 1,000 gifts

since they began. 


Just before Christmas 2011, a parent of one of my students was up at

the Veterans' Homeless Shelter in Worcester (run by Vets, Inc.). She saw

a veteran with a Washington Redskins sweatshirt and commented that

he was in Patriots' Nation. He quietly responded, "I know, but it is the

only shirt I have." This story still brings a tear to my eyes.


Absolutely no veteran of our country should be

homeless, or without proper clothing.

We would like to offer a Boston team's sweatshirt to the homeless veterans at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans, Vets, Inc., and all of the other New England based homeless shelters serving our veterans

Thank you very much for you gifts of kindness. Please share the link...

Merry Christmas!
