This year for Veteran’s Day, our goal is to raise funds for Homes for Veterans, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They launched a “Covid Care Package” program during the pandemic, dropping cases of essential items to local Veteran facilities. This program is in addition to their normal work, renovating the homes of disabled veterans to create a barrier-free living, at no cost to the veterans.
Homes for Veterans will purchase essential items for the Manhattan VA Medical Center (423 East 23rd Street) with the funds raised. Items include socks, underwear, t-shirts, sanitary napkins, razors, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, and/or ear savers (for the back of masks). This drop will service approximately 200 veterans.
The New York Young Republican Club would like to raise $500-$1000, and Homes for Veterans will match the New York Young Republican Club’s donation by November 30th.
Established in 1911, incorporated in 1912, with a legacy from 1856, the New York Young Republican Club is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious Young Republican club in the United States. The Club is affiliated with and officially recognized by the Association of New York State Young Republican Clubs and the Young Republican National Federation, as well as the county, state, and national Republican committees.
