Here at Cuddledown, we believe everyone deserves to experience the benefits of great sleep – especially our military veterans. That’s why we were thrilled to donate bedding to the United Veterans of Maine’s (UVM) new emergency shelter for homeless veterans, the “Farm of Hope.”
Opening this Saturday, November 18th, the Caribou-based farm will provide veterans the opportunity to work on premises, and receive housing while they begin their transition to civilian life, focus on healing, gain employment and more.
The farm is the latest venture by the United Veterans of Maine (UVM), a non-profit organization founded in 2015 and operated by veteran volunteers, that is aimed at providing homeless veterans with the housing, treatment, and tools needed to become self-sufficient.
“Our mission is to ensure that no veteran goes without shelter,” said Karen St. Peter, Fundraising Director of the UVM. “And the generosity of businesses like Cuddledown makes our work possible.”
“On behalf of our volunteers and all the veterans we serve, we would like to thank Cuddledown for generously providing the bedding products for our new duplexes,” said St. Peter. “These duplexes will provide safe and stable housing for veterans working to make the transition to self-reliance.”
We’re more than excited to be a part of this new shelter for homeless veterans, and wish the UVM and all other veterans involved the very best!
