JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

If you're looking for a way to give back, consider donating to Mississippi veterans.    

Voice of Calvary Ministries and Soldier On are asking folks to donate items like kitchenware and furniture, especially mattresses.

The non-profit groups already help homeless veterans find permanent housing, but after that, many of the veterans often don't have any basic necessities.

"To have just some of the basic things that we take for granted everyday you know you reach into the cupboard to get a cup, there's a cup there, you know you reach into the cupboard to get a plate or pull out your silverware drawer to get a utensil to eat or even something as simple as a coffeemaker they're extremely happy with that," says Barbara Thornton, the Coordinator of Community Engagement with Voice Of Calvary Ministries. 

To learn more about making donations, call Voice of Calvary Ministries at 601-969-3088. 

Veterans who need assistance can call Soldier On at 1-866-406-8449.
