As our troops return to their homeland and transition to a civilian life, they are often filled with uncertainties. A greater challenge awaits them in their return: the challenge of finding a job and making sure their basic needs are met.
When they were still active-duty soldiers, our veterans endured sacrifices and courageously risked their lives to protect our rights and our nationâs security. They dreamt of living a better life, free from harm and danger, upon their return home at the end of their military career. To their utter dismay, this didnât come true. Many of our veterans are now struggling to make ends meet even as they try to find decent jobs that can provide them an income sufficient enough to enable them to support themselves and their families.
But only a few manage to find jobs. Many of our veterans remain jobless and, worse, homeless, due to extreme poverty. They are overlooked and left behind.
But as the clichĂ© goes, all hope is not lost. You can give that hope to our struggling veterans in your own city. By taking part in our Greenwood, Indiana car donations program, you can provide them much-needed assistance.
By giving away your old car or truck to us at Veteran Car Donations, you will enable the veterans in your city to receive employment and counseling services, medical and housing assistance, and many more.
Greenwood, Indiana: The âSmocktownâ
As of 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau placed the population of Greenwood, Indiana at 53,828. The city is part of Indianaâs Johnson County, situated 11 miles south of Indianapolis, Indiana. Greenwood is part of the Indianapolis metropolitan area.
The early inhabitants of the city were the Native Americans. In 1813, the Delaware Indiansâ village was wiped out by the Indiana and Kentucky militias. The community was originally known as âSmocktownâ or “Smock’s Settlement,” but later embraced the name “Greenfield.” However, at that time, there was already another city named Greenfield in Hancock County. So, the government decided to change its name to Greenwood.
