Hudson Valley Veterans Alliance
We had a great time donating a motorized scooter to a veteran in need at Hudson River Housing. A Vietnam era veteran living at Liberty Station through the Support Services for Veteran Families received this working scooter after we charged and replaced the batteries. The Alliance hopes our assistance will take him far!
From their website and Facebook page:
"From November 1st through 11th, we [All Sport Fishkill] will fly tribute flags along our property in Fishkill as a show of our patriotism and support for American Heroes. The flags are proudly made in the U.S.A., and yellow ribbons will be placed on all flags for donors to write a name or dedication. [...] All Sport has many members and staff who are active or retired military personnel, or have family and close friends who have served or continue to serve our country. Salute to Our Veterans is our way of thanking those in our own community who have sacrificed so much for our freedom".
This was not a fundraising event. Adventure and fun for all Veterans were had by all, with many of us participating in a 22-rifle competition and skeet shoot. Nothing like an afternoon outdoors with lively people!
Local Korea Veteran, Joe, needed a new tank for his residence, and the winter was quickly approaching. HVVA mitigated a termination charge and installed a new tank for him. We partnered with local nonprofit ally Hudson Valley Hero Project, who covered the cost of the tank, to go above and beyond for Joe.
A local veteran's personal possessions were put out on the curb by the Sheriff's department. We all drove to his residence and transported his belongings to a nearby storage center. We decided, because of the sensitive nature of this request for assistance, that it was not appropriate to document our work. All requests are handled with the proper discretion.
In November of 2016, The Alliance learned of a 75 year old Vietnam era Veteran with a low fixed income whose furnace was beyond repair. We were able to procure him a new furnace at a discounted price, and members of the Alliance installed the furnace for him.
