Nickels for Nails is the youth-led fundraising component of Youth United, our initiative that mobilizes youth ages 5-25 to fund raise for the SCV Homes for Heroes program. It’s easy to help, and even the youngest child can understand the purpose, as the jar fills up and the kids receive updates on the veterans we have been able to help and home modifications that change their lives.
Plum Canyon Elementary raised $2,227!With the money Homes For Heroes veteran Joshua Murphy was able to get a new shower. Joshua hurt his back and head in Iraq after being struck by mortar and gets dizzy and cannot bend over in the shower. Now he has a brand new shower with a seat and hand rails. A wonderful holiday gift!
