What happening in January at the VAC and Boots on the Ground NY
Happy New year everyone!
We will not be having a monthly collection this month and that will resume in a few weeks.
The team has been back on the road this month providing outreach with our VSP (Veteran Support Program) this month by taking the trailer out on Saturdays picking up and delivering furniture.
We do have some critical needs for that program currently. Dressers, night tables, small kitchen table sets, small sofa’s, new bed linens and towels. Donation pledges can be made online at http://www.bootsonthegroundny.com/item-donation-request-form/
VSP helps Veterans that were homeless transition into their own housing.
We can also use funds for the purchase of mattresses bed sets
And, could use food gift cards which can be mailed to PO Box 675 Bellport NY 11713.
Financial donations can be made securely at www.BootsontheGroundNY.com/donate and are tax-deductible.
Veterans please don’t forget our weekly peer groups each week
Male veterans Tuesdays nights 1900-2100 hours, Female Veterans Thursdays 1800-2000 hrs.
Every third Tuesday we go bowling, and we will also be going to the movies on a upcoming Tuesday night as well.
There will not be an Annual pack out this January as the Emporium has closed their business last summer, and we have not found a new venue for the event sized and cost friendly to hold the event.
We are currently looking at dates at Mulcaheys in Wantagh to hold our Annual Fundraiser & Robert Cafici Memorial
We will post our February update on 1/31 with what’s will be going on for the month and upcoming events.
Thank you for your support.
