ASSISTANCE FOR VETERANS IS LOOKING FOR PARTNERS TO HELP US WITH OUR MISSION - DELIVERIES FOR 2020

We could use non-perishable items, clothing, hygiene items and other goodies for our “Veterans Assistance Care Packages.” We are a 501 c3 non-profit organization dedicated to veteran causes. We accept vehicle, RV or boat donations running or not and you will get your tax-deductible receipt for your kind donation. Our mission is only successful with your help, the more we get the more we deliver. We measure our work by the tons of food and clothing delivered; our Chrysler Town & Country we used for many years has finally said no more and we hope to get a larger vehicle ASAP.

STAND DOWN FOR VETERANS LOS ANGELES CONVENTION CENTER

We enjoyed this years Stand Down at the Los Angeles Convention Center where we had a table set up to assist veterans who could use a helping hand. We had fliers for free furniture from Patriots & Paws and promoted our program. We handed out about 150 American flag lapel pins and a bunch of other cool stuff that we were able to give away. We also took a bunch of care packages full of non-perishable items with the assistance from The Sunshine Club of Wilmington, California who also assisted us a couple of weeks back, we were able to take a bunch of care packages for homeless veterans who come to The Pier Center in Long Beach for assistance.

THANKING OUR FRIENDS AT HARLEY-DAVIDSON

These dealerships have stepped up bigtime to support our efforts; special thanks to Bartlel’s Harley-Davidson of Marina Del Rey; Los Angeles Harley-Davidson of Anaheim; Huntington Beach Harley-Davidson of Westminster and California Harley-Davidson.

During this holiday season, we will be looking to help our veterans in need of a warm place to sleep and a good meal, and ready to assist them off the streets if they are ready to make that commitment. We were able to deliver turkeys this past Friday with our Veterans Food Assistance Packs that we deliver weekly, which made for an enjoyable day. (Story continued click on picture or headline.)

LOS ANGELES HOMELESS CAPITOL OF AMERICA MANY OF THOSE HOMELESS ARE MILITARY VETERANS

HOMELESSNESS IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY RISES SHARPLY - JUNE 2020

 

run-for-the-wall-2013

RUN FOR THE WALL 25TH ANNIVERSARY
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

It was a nice warm Wednesday, morning, when 1,500 motorcycles and support vehicles rolled out of a parking lot in Rancho Cucamonga, California for a 10 day trip to Washington DC. Their journey is not a fun one but one to bring attention to the tragedy of war and our MIA/POW veterans.

From the shirt I am proudly wearing it states “Freedom Is Not Free” and that is important for everyone to remember. Lets say a prayer for these brave veterans on this ride/journey to Washington DC. For many men and women this is a yearly event they do proudly.

View video below of first group that left, this is the most organized event I have ever attended and probably the most challenging for those behind the scenes who make this Run For The Wall a success, going on 26 years now. Just a great group of people we can all support by donating or buying something at their website. (View More Pictures Click Here)
