Monday Morning Debreifing

Apr 28, 14 Monday Morning Debreifing
Thank you to all Our Volunteers & Supporters this past week. Between weeknights and the weekend we were able to deliver apartment furniture, furnishings & food to 6 Veteran households while spending Saturday prepping to deliver another two apartments this week to 2 Veterans who just recently received housing of their own. We put 114 Care packages in the mail this week which are now en-route to Afghanistan.
 
Thank you to the Peconic River Sportsman Club for hosting a very successful event on Sunday and donating the proceeds to BOTGNY Veteran Support Programs.

We are still looking for additional sponsors to cover the cost of Food and T-shirts for our 5th Annual BBQ at the VA hospital on Father’s Day weekend. Information for our “Run to the VA” can be found in the sponsorship link in the online store. This BBQ is just a small token of our appreciation to the Veterans that now reside in the nursing home at bldg. 92

And Thank You to all those that continue to send in general donations along with the notes and words of encouragement and support of the programs. Our mission couldn’t be accomplished with the support of the community. Next Monday (and every 1st Monday of each month) we will be posting a monthly financial report of the status of our programs (Veteran Activity Center, Military Care Package Program & Project Veteran Support). These programs are funded by the community and you deserve to be able to see the balances.
