Thanksgiving Needs: Food store gift cards.

Oct 03, 17 Thanksgiving Needs: Food store gift cards.

Posted by in Boots On The Ground, Community Support

We have spent the last few years collecting frozen turkeys and distributing them along with up to 40 pounds of groceries. (and up to 500 Veterans in some years have received this). But as we do not have the freezer space any longer (as we lost two big freezers to age). We are looking to have food gift cards donated so that we can distribute these to Veterans and allow them to do the shopping for their Thanksgiving (stores such as King Kullen, Stop &Shop, Shoprite, Best Market). These food cards can be dropped off at the VAC during monthly posted collections dates or mailed to PO Box 675 Bellport NY 11713. We are hoping by putting this out early, that groups and organization will jump on board and create fundraisers of their own to collect the gift cards. Please also don’t forget our food pantry collection drives coming up on Saturdays 10/21 and 11/18 at the VAC (2184 Pond Road, Ronkonkoma) between the hours of 1000 -1500 hrs. (We will be collecting small frozen turkeys and turkey breasts only) We THANK YOU for your support. Share this:PrintTweetEmailMoreShare on TumblrWhatsAppTelegramPocketLike this:Like...

Mar 08, 17 Interested in Providing a Meal for our Veteran Peer Groups & Activities ?

Posted by in Community Support

  Anyone, business or restaurant/deli interested in providing dinner for a Veterans Support group? Boots on the Ground NY’s Veteran Activity Center hosts and facilitates meeting for Veterans a few nights a week, we try to provide dinner/meals/snacks at each group which is served prior to the group activity which starts 30 minutes later. This is an important part of our program as it shows these Veterans that the community cares and no food is ever wasted as we allow the Vets to take home the leftovers. Meals can be dropped off on Thursday & Mondays between 5:30PM & 6pm and on Tuesdays between 6pm & 6:30 pm, or earlier in the day is needed by coordinating with a Boots team member. Presently we have groups on Tuesdays, Thursday and other occasional weeknights. We have established a more organized way for supporters and friends to provide meals for our weekly Veteran peer night, the link is https://mealtrain.com/yl68vm Please contact us and thank you for your support Boots on the Ground NY “Leaving no Veteran behind” info@bootsonthegroundny.com 631-615-2200 Share this:PrintTweetEmailMoreShare on TumblrWhatsAppTelegramPocketLike this:Like...
