Please Help Us Keep the Mission Going.

Dec 09, 16 Please Help Us Keep the Mission Going.

If you’re already thinking about your end of the year donations for your tax write off purposes, please consider Boots on the Ground NY. In 2015 over 95.5% of all donation went to Veterans, programs and the VAC, your donation goes far with BOTGNY and where you want it to go.


Currently our ‘VAC’ account which pays the rent and utilities of the Veteran Activity Center, only has $4,400 in that account (which basically only covers us through mid-January). We only have one annual fundraiser and that is not till April/May of each year.

Our Military Care Package account has approx. $8,000.00. We just recently spent over $2,000 in the past three weeks to get packages out to Bagram Airfield after hearing the BX was temporarily closed after the 11/11 suicide bombing. We have just 50 days to raise enough money to ship over 5,000 packages that will be created at our annual Big Pack Out at the Emporium on January 29th.

Our VSP account (Veteran support account) has under $6,000, barely enough funds to cover purchases of mattresses, emergency bills and requests for Holiday assistance for the month of December.


Many of you know the work we do at Boots, and we all do it as Volunteers, there will never be salaries involved. Team members and supporters at BOTGNY spend their evening, weekends doing our small part in seeing that no Veteran is left behind. We believe in keeping veterans connected.


Wednesday night we received a phone call from the Mother of a little boy, who was celebrating his birthday with a party later in the evening, the little boy, already a true patriot decided rather than provide goodie bags to his guests, he wanted to donate the money to Boots on the Ground NY, so it could be used for the Troops & Veterans.

We truly have the best supporters in the World!
