Please consider sponsoring our 8th Annual Father’s Day Weekend BBQ at the Northport VA The Veterans that reside at the Northport VA look forward to this event every year. We deliver a BBQ, live music, needed supplies and a few hours of friendship Every June we host a BBQ at the Northport VA, it’s the same weekend as Father’s Day, this is a fun day with good food and live music for all the Veterans that reside in the VA, we always also invite all of our supporters to join us in spending the afternoon with these Veterans and join us for the day. We don’t charge fees, and everyone is invited for free, but we do need funds to make this event successful. We are asking for sponsors of the event, here is the link http://www.bootsonthegroundny.com/product/7th-annual-run-to-the-va-event-sponsor/ or you can just make a general donation at http://www.BootsontheGroundNY.com/donate  to help with costs to this event. the funds collected for this event go towards purchasing the food (burgers/buns/soda/water/etc) and to purchase 200 t-shirts that we provide the Veterans that attend the gathering. each year we create a t-shirt, and sponsors logo and mentions are on the back. We also bring supplies to the hospitalized Veterans. This is a great day for family and friends, as we need the help of the community, as many of the Veterans are in wheelchairs and can use the help being assisted to and from the grounds as well as help getting their food, but most of all, we all get to make new friends that day, and the Veterans look forward to this. Hope to see you on Saturday June 17th. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/399023410447925/ Share this:PrintTweetEmailMoreShare on TumblrWhatsAppTelegramPocketLike this:Like...

Meals can be dropped off on Thursday & Mondays between 5:30PM & 6pm and on Tuesdays between 6pm & 6:30 pm, or earlier in the day is needed by coordinating with a Boots team member.

Weekly Update – Monday March 6th 2017

This Saturday the team went out with two trailers and were able to assist 2 veterans with furniture for their apartments. The disadvantaged Veterans that BOTGNY assist have just recently transitioned from the status of homeless to getting government assisted apartments. The same day we were able to make 4 pickups of generously donated furnishings for apartments. Currently we are in need of only dressers, small kitchen sets, end tables, night stands. We ask that all pledges of furniture be in great shape, we also do not have much in the way of storage space so we are only picking up items that are needed each month. Your donations are tax deductible (speak with your accountant). BOTGNY will never sell an item to Veterans or anyone. Donated furniture is only given to veterans in need, never sold. And BOTGNY will never accept a donation from a veteran were assisting. To make a donation please only use this link from our website: http://www.bootsonthegroundny.com/item-donation-request-form/ Thank you for your support BOTGNY is 100% Volunteer, please think about offering a few hours each month to be part of our VSP (Veteran Support Program) teams.   Boots on the Ground NY is here to show support for our Troops and to assist military Veterans along the road of life. If you’re interested in getting involved, you should stop into the VAC (veteran’s activity center) during a community night.     Tonight, Monday the 6th is open to all veterans and military family members (every first and third Monday of the month, doors open by 1800 hours) working on different projects to assist our many missions.   Tuesday the 7th is a veteran only nights (every Tuesday, doors open by 1830 hours)   Thursday the 9th is a female veteran only night (every Thursday, doors open at 1800 hours)   Saturday the 11th is our VSP program (veteran support program), volunteers will either be doing pickups, deliveries or working with our furniture collection program   Saturday the 18th is our monthly collection drop off day...
