Over 450 U.S. Veterans served!
All of the U.S. Veterans that we assist come from many different branches of military service and with varied degrees of disabilities and hardships.
Through community support we collect and provide furniture (beds, dressers, kitchen tables, chairs, sofa) household items, kitchen utensils, linens, dish sets, toiletries, etc.
Although homeless, they are left with a deep sense of pride and welcome our support and services because we do not offer a handout, we offer our hand in friendship and support. We provide the items needed to start over.
We try to accommodate the best we can as a 100% volunteer organization. Click Here

Playtime With A Purpose
Next Event: June 18, 2017
A FREE monthly program for registrants at Gymboree Play & Music. We combine free play, arts, music and dance and also coordinate a charitable purpose into event!
Whether we are collecting food for an animal shelter or prepping charity gifts to adult homes and youth groups. Everything we do adds a charity purpose into the events! We believe when you inspire the younger generation to be charitable and giving it makes the world and our futures brighter.
Thanks to the extremely generous donation of the Carmel Rotary Club Foundation we now have a Cargo Trailer. Our new 2018 - 16ft Cargo Trailer, will make our work more efficient. We will be able to load up and take care of multiple Vets. This will make a tremendous difference in our work.
Help Fill a Bin for a Vet!
Janet Hecken, our "My Brother Vinny Bin Lady," has dedicated so much of her personal funds to tirelessly create these bins. These "starter kits" are prepared with so much love and at a great expense to Janet. As of April 30, she created and donated 582 bins since joining MBV in 2015. Review our PDF list and contact us to arrange drop-off.
