We are a local 501(C)(3) charity in the Dayton Ohio area with the sole purpose of helping less-served and homeless Veterans at the Dayton VA Center. With support from friends and family the Leasure family started this charity in 2005. We have grown with help from various local churches, businesses, community organizations and friends.
Each year at Christmas time dinner is prepared and served with volunteers of the local community and gifts are distributed: including clothing, footwear, and toiletries. Santa Claus makes his appearance and entertainment is volunteered by local musical talents.
2020 has been a strange year to say the least. Do to Coronavirus things will be different for us this year. We hope you are all well during this time.
We are requesting monetary donations as early as possible this Fall to buy Christmas gifts for three different buildings at the Dayton VA housing about 160 homeless and Veterans in need.
We are advised there will probably not be any dinner parties due to a continuation of COVID 19.
Please your checks to 2427 Edenhill Ave, Kettering, Ohio 45420.
We plan to post our progress and any updates on this site. Thank you for your continued support of Veterans right here in our own backyards.

If you can not volunteer but you are still interested in helping this worthy cause you can do so by making donations payable to Transient Veterans. 100% of all donations is used to support our cause which is for these Veterans. Donations may be made at any time, however, donations made earlier in the year gives us an opportunity to take advantage of sales on merchandise at the end of winter, spring and summer. You may send a check or money order payable to: "Transient Veterans" and mail to: Transient Veterans 2724 Eden Ave Kettering, Ohio 4542
