Our Mission needs locations for storage trailers.

May 27, 14 Our Mission needs locations for storage trailers.

Supporters we are in need of assistance with our mission. We were donated trailers for storage and we have yet to find locations for them.

As many of you might know, Boots on the Ground NY assists Veterans by providing Support Groups, food pantry and also a furniture pantry (the furniture pantry is for Veterans and their Families that were recently homeless or living in shelters). These families in some case have nothing more than the clothes on their back and what we provide is enough to give them a good positive head start and furnish their new housing which is provided by HUD-VASH. It would be very hard for me to explain the emotions of a Veteran who has nothing in his apartment but an air mattress, and then one evening a trailer and a crew of volunteer Veterans pull up and furnish a complete apartment with 2-3 rooms of furniture, kitchen goods and a months’ worth food. This is our way of letting them know we appreciate their service to country, they are no longer alone and we have their back.

We have been working out of two trailers in the Babylon area for a few years, but as the mission and the offers of donations grows so has the need for more storage and at other locations in Suffolk to make responses easier. We have reached out to local government but they have been unable to assist us with this. Our Donor needs for us to take ownership of the trailers soon and remove them from his Shirley location as they are not in compliance with town ordinances and we do not want to lose these 40 foot trailers.

If anyone knows of locations that wouldn’t mind partnering with us in “Leaving No Veteran Behind”, please contact me. And time is critical. (Anywhere between the Rte 110 Area and Riverhead)

Any Veterans or Military that would like to assist us with “Project Veteran Support” can also contact us. We usually pick up and deliver donations one weeknight a week and then 2 Saturdays a month.
