Donation collection and pack out for Military & Veterans down responding to Hurricane Harvey in Houston. 9/6/2017

What – Donation collection and pack out for Military & Veterans down responding to Hurricane Harvey in Houston.
When – Tuesday September 5th 6pm till 9pm
Where – “the VAC” (Veterans Activity Center) 2184 Pond Road, Ronkonkoma
Who – Boots on the Ground NY

We have the name and address of a navy helicopter rescue unit doing resupply and rescues and another Veteran group doing rescue / recovery work so we will be doing a pack out at the VAC Tuesday night (September 5th) with everyone encouraged to pick up care package items and assist my Veteran peer groups packing boxes and loading the trailer so we can ship Wednesday and have them in Houston area a few days after that!!!
Typical care package items needed, (snacks, toiletries, personal care items) but let’s get lots of new socks and new underwear down there.
(we will not be shipping clothing other than the new packages of socks, underwear, etc) .
Let’s also get face masks, heavy duty extension cords, leather gloves, nitrile (not latex) gloves, and disposable Tyvek coveralls. Laundry soap, dish soap, heavy duty garbage bags, cleaning wipes, hand wipes, insect repellent, sponges, clotheslines.

We’re Blessed to say we already have some supplies already as well as a bit of shipping funds to be able to assist the Troops working the rescues, but we could use more items as well as donations towards shipping (shipping donations at www.BootsontheGroundNY.com/donate Click here to donate toward shipping costs )
We’ll be packing B & C size care package boxes. (which range from $12-$22 for shipping the size boxes)

1800 hrs. at the VAC. Let’s do this!
Because the maximum effective range of prayers and thoughts are zero meters.
Anyone else with their boots in the water in Houston- email me.

Thank you for your Support!
