All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to acquire, remodel and administer Niagara County's first Permanent Supported Living Facility in Lockport, New York, exclusive to our local disabled & homeless Veterans.
We are hopeful that with our combined efforts we may also acquire a passenger van to transport Veterans to receive services in other areas as needed.
The urgent care & emergency services that our Veterans require, is in Erie County or Genesee County, miles away from home. Transportation to those areas is often difficult. It is important that we accommodate our Veteran heroes where we can provide the necessary care they require while keeping them close to their families. For many, having loved ones close by for support is crucial to the recovery process.
The coordination of this annual event is a combined effort of the following:
* Kids Breaking Free Foundation, Inc.
* Orleans/Niagara BOCES
* Sunrise Optimist Club of Lockport, Inc.
* Elks Lodge #41
* VFW Post #2535
