Give warmth this holiday season

Give warmth, compassion and holiday cheer to Bay Area veterans today.

Cold Nights,
Warm Hearts

Our nearly 40-year tradition at Swords to Plowshares has been to bring a little holiday cheer to veterans experiencing homelessness. We provide a traditional holiday meal and fill backpacks with essential items veterans without shelter need, such as hygiene items, socks, hats, and more. This year, we will prepare and deliver 200 prepackaged holiday meals and backpacks to some of our most vulnerable veterans living without shelter.


Support our veterans

No one should spend the holidays in isolation. Community involvement is an integral component to bettering the mental wellbeing of aging and disabled veterans. We will also support the 500 formerly homeless veterans who live in our eight housing sites across San Francisco and organize a festive holiday meal to bring an extra measure of holiday cheer.

Whether it is $5 or $500, every little bit helps to provide the gift of warmth and compassion to veterans who need them the most.
