NEW YORK, November 5, 2020 /3BL Media/—Today the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) announced a collaboration with the Wells Fargo Foundation (WFF) to address veteran homelessness and housing instability exacerbated by COVID-19. For many veterans, their ability to maintain safe and stable housing is threatened by legal, mental health, employment, and financial issues, made worse due to the current crisis.

This year more than most, everyone is terrified to ask their employees to do anything beyond the basics of their jobs. They’re busy, they’re exhausted, they just can’t. “We shouldn’t ask our employees to do more right now. They just don’t have time.” The solution? Just make it easier. Curate the volunteer opportunities, plan the events, send out the awards – and then all employees will have to do is show up, make a difference, feel good, and get back to work. It’s the only way to meet them where they are without canceling volunteering altogether. Right?
Every day, we strive to meet the expectations of our stakeholders, our communities and ourselves. We know the importance of this responsibility, and we take it seriously. Global Week of Service (GWS) is an annual opportunity for us to carry out this ambition across the globe by making an impact in our local communities. For the first time, GWS went 100% virtual, allowing our volunteers to participate in meaningful, fun, and impactful community-focused initiatives within the safety of their own homes.

At the same time, the agencies and organizations responsible for maintaining public lands are hampered by reductions in staff, volunteers, and resources, leaving them ill-equipped to keep up with increased human presence in these delicate ecosystems on top of existing maintenance backlogs.
The weather was typical for a July evening in the Washington, D.C., Metro Area, but the event was a rare treat for military families isolated during the worst pandemic to hit the United States in 100 years.
