With the help of the community, the Bellevue University Military Veteran Services Center wants to fill 200 backpacks – double the number filled last year – to help homeless military veterans at the Siena Francis House.

Now through Friday, Nov. 4, the public can donate much-needed items to fill the backpacks. Items can be dropped off at Bellevue University’s Military Veteran Services Center at 2108 Harvell Drive in Bellevue, Nebraska 68005. The center is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Monetary donations will be accepted, as well, and will be used to purchase needed items. Donations can be made by clicking on the donate button below which will take you online to https://web.bellevue.edu/payments/make_gift/ (designate Military and Veteran Services).
