Construction Materials – Assistance Needed


We have signed the lease and begun to move into our new facility on Pond Road in Ronkonkoma. This is a existing 2700 SF warehouse that we are transforming into a Veterans Activity Center, which will house Veteran talk groups, PTSD groups and seminars, a couples group for Vets and spouses, as well as having a secure place for Veterans returning to life on the home front and a for place for them to come down and relax along with other Veterans and share their experiences.  This VAC will also house our Care Package program, as we send care packages to the War; we also deliver care packages to Veterans currently residing in Veteran Hospitals here on Long Island. We maintain a furniture and food pantry for Veterans that were homeless and our now moving into a stable environment. These are just a few of our Veteran support programs (VSP). We will soon be moving our current group program from the Bayport Community Center to the VAC in Ronkonkoma.

Before buying much of the needed materials to build out the space, I wanted to throw this out there to see if we could get some of the items donated. This email list stretches pretty far so please feel free to forward to anyone you think could assist this mission.

We are in need of the following materials and items.

  • Metal studs, drywall and plywood, along with interior doors, frames & hardware
  • Paint, wall base & carpeting, shelving
  • Kitchen cabinets & countertops, along with resource work tops
  • Large pantry style lockers, refrigerator.
  • Folding chairs and tables, misc furnishings.
  • Fluorescent light fixtures, track light systems and  commercial ceiling fans
  • Electrical wiring supplies & electricians willing to donate some time.
  • Portable AC units
