Request for Assistance: Veteran In Need

May 10, 13 Request for Assistance: Veteran In Need

Veteran In Need

Boots on the Ground NY has received a request to assist a Nassau County Veteran family who has just moved into government assisted housing. This family includes a single mother of 2 young children (ages 3 & 11). This Mother is not only a Veteran (active Duty 2000-2011) but also still a National Guard Reservist and attends drill weekends once a month. She is currently unemployed but actively looking for work. She does not receive child support.

This Family requires basic house hold goods, furniture, as well as food.  Gift cards for clothing and food stores would also be extremely helpful as it allows the family to buy that which they need most.  We do not accept used mattresses but we will accept financial donations to assist in purchasing 3 new mattresses. Presently the family is sleeping on air mattresses on the floor.

Please contact BOTG-NY if you are in a position to help this family with either material donations or financial contributions. Any donations are tax-deductible.  We also can receive donations on our website.  Simply visit our donations page and click the button to make a general donation, then, use the “Special Instructions to Seller” to mention family #5113.

Thank You,
