Volunteer spotlight

BidPal employees volunteer at HVAF
On a bright Thursday morning in November, volunteers from BidPal rolled up their sleeves to paint the Manchester apartments, one of HVAF’s 13 transitional housing properties.

The fifty-one-unit apartment provides housing for veterans who are in need of help. The apartments are provided by HVAF, which offers case management and support.

"We identified a population that our staff could help create a positive impact on" said Joshua Meyer, Director of Marketing at BidPal. "These men and women end up homeless sooner than we think, it was important to our team to do something to help.”

Each year, BidPal, an Indianapolis based fundraising software company, chooses a charity to contribute to through their PhilantroPal Day. Nineteen volunteers took time out of their work schedule to volunteer at HVAF.

"We think this kind of work is really important," he said. "We see more and more homeless people on the street, and this is a really good cause and all of us at BidPal are glad to be part of the change in improving the lives of homeless veterans," says Joshua.
