Pennies 4 Miles

to Help House Homeless Heroes

Drivers from Nagle Trucking Inc., Motor Carrier Service L.L.C., GetGo Transportation, and R&J Trucking have teamed up with Veterans Matter to help house our nation's homeless heroes. Each driver has pledged to drive thousands of miles over the next 3 months in support of our homeless veterans.

My name is Jeff Burgard and I’m 44 years old. My wonderful wife Sandy and I have been married for almost 17 years and have a 15 year old biological daughter.  In addition some wonderful children come and stay with us when the need arises. We are also foster parents as well.

This year marked 23 years as an over the road driver 20 plus of which has been with Motor Carrier Service in Northwood, Ohio. I’m also a practicing member of St. Lawrence Catholic Church.          

As a veteran of the United States Marine Corp, and a strong supporter of Wreaths Across America, I have had the honor of delivering wreath to Arlington National Cemetery 4 different times. 

I have pledged to drive 28,000 miles in support of Veterans Matter to help house our nation's homeless veterans. Please consider donating to help me provide a home for the brave in the land of the free. 

About Veterans Matter

Our mission is simple, house as many veterans as we can, as fast as we can.

In 2012, Veterans Matter was launched in Toledo to house 35 local veterans and expanded nationally with the support of Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, John Mellencamp, and Mitch Albom, who wanted to help house veterans in their home states.

Veterans Matter – National Homeless Veterans Housing Program is a systems-level non-profit organization that works directly with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and local VA homeless programs to provide rental deposits and the veteran’s portion of the first month’s rent for chronically homeless veterans engaged in the HUD-VASH program. Using evidenced-based best practices, Veterans Matter has now housed over 3,900 veterans and over 1,400 veteran’s children in 25 states.
