Sarandon joins 'Veterans Matter'
Veterans Matter is a non-profit organization that works directly with HUD and the VA to ensure that all the money raised for homeless veterans go directly to landlords who provide homes for veterans. Sarandon is joining other celebrities such as Kid Rock, Ice-T, Katy Perry, John Mellencamp and Heart who are using their celebrity status and influence to raise more money for our veterans.
The organization is grateful to these celebrities for making a difference. Due to their help, Veterans Matter has been able to find homes for over 400 veterans. Why are celebrities supporting this effort? Sarandon summed it up with this comment, “This is personal to me; I want to help Veterans Matter because it is so important that we work to help house the heroes on our streets.”
