Arnold Schwarzenegger donates 25 tiny homes to homeless California veterans

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday donated 25 tiny homes to homeless veterans in West Los Angeles.

Schwarzenegger coordinated with Village for Vets, a nonprofit dedicated to providing food and shelter to homeless and at-risk veterans, as well as Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough and volunteer organization American Veterans (AMVETS) to build the tiny homes.

“Today, I celebrated Christmas early. The 25 homes I donated for homeless veterans were installed here in LA,” the former governor wrote in a Thursday tweet. “It was fantastic to spend some time with our heroes and welcome them into their new homes.”

Village for Vets said in a Thursday tweet that Schwarzenegger’s $250,000 donation to the nonprofit “made it possible” for the organization “to purchase and build the remaining 25 shelters” at the Los Angeles VA’s Care Treatment Rehabilitative Services (CTRS) site.

“I’ve made and have this great success because of America,” the former bodybuilder and actor born in Austria told us “The Issue Is.” “If it isn’t bodybuilding, if it isn’t business, if it isn’t show business, movies and politics — whatever I tackled I achieved because of America, so to me, it’s always great to give something back.”

“Its been a life-saver for me,” Cooper, who lives in one of the tiny homes, told the outlet, adding that the former governor “has not forgotten…anybody.”
