HOTH Veteran's Assistance Application_07-29-2018

For veterans that have SC Disabilities, meet criteria and in need of assistance.  Please click HERE for information on the HOTH Veteran's Assistance program.

 

As we are approaching the holiday season, it's an excellent time to remember our fallen and their ultimate sacrafice; another way to remember them is to sponsor a wreath.  Sponsoring a wreath through Wreaths Across America is easy.

The Patriot Guard Riders of Eastern New York have once again been granted Group Sponsorship status within the Wreaths Across America organization. So what does our Group Sponsorship status mean? Well for every two wreaths that are ordered - using our group codes – Wreaths Across America will donate another wreath - we get 3 for 2. 

 

Important information 

Our Group Fundraiser Code is:  NY0057
Our Location ID is:  NYGSNS

After much thought and consideration, we have determined that is has become necessary to shut down the PGRNY ROC HOTH Warehouse. Our last delivery to veterans will be December 8, 2018.  Effective immediately we will no longer accept furniture donations.

The program, which became formally organized in December of 2015, has grown above and beyond our expectations and what our membership can support. Through the dedication of the many PGR Members and others from the community who have come and helped with the pickups and deliveries each month, the generosity of the members of the community who donated furniture; U-Haul of Greece and TMS Express, Inc. for supplying trucks; and Buckingham Properties for the use of the rooms in their warehouse,

we have been able to provide over 1,850 pieces of furniture to 214 veterans.

Our success would also not have been possible without the dedicated staff who worked tirelessly to keep this operation running:
Jason Forte: Warehouse Manager; Donation Coordinator
Steve Ford: Assistant Warehouse Manager
Dan Ritz: Veteran Request Coordinator
Donna Brown: Inventory Assistant; Veteran Escort
Dave Lippa: Warehouse Liaison and Safety Captain
Our Drivers:
Dave Lippa
Steve Burley
Joe McQueen
Gary Shulenburg

And countless other volunteers too numerous to mention.

Although we are unable to keep this program running, every person connected should feel proud of the difference that was made in the lives of those veterans transitioning back into society.
