Service Day

The Cohen Clinic is collecting items for homeless veterans through June 28.

In addition to mental health, basic hygiene is an essential part of a homeless veteran’s overall health. That’s why we’re asking for toiletry items like soap and shampoo for all veterans and feminine hygiene products for women veterans. Check out our Amazon Wish List to ship items directly to the Cohen Clinic. You may also drop off items in donation trunks located at our clinic on the 3rd floor and the veterans employment suite on the 2nd floor of 1420 Spring Street, Silver Spring, MD 20910.

Our team will disperse everything through the Easterseals Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program and partner organizations serving homeless veterans in our region.

Thank you for your support!
