Patriots and Paws program Provisions for Patriots is helping our Veterans/Active Military/Reservists that may have been homeless or have fallen on hard times and in need regain their dignity as they are becoming part of the community they live in. We provide basic home furnishing to them for FREE and some of them have recently just received HUD/VASH vouchers but they receive nothing for their home. Through the donations of the community we are able to give our Veterans/active Military and their families basic home furnishings like a bed, living room set, and dining room set. To qualify for Patriots and Paws you just need to be currently serving in the US Military or have served, that is it. No other requirements. Many of our Veterans are in need of a companion who will be non judging and love them unconditional and these is where the animals come in. Some of them also need a purpose and have an animal to care for give them a purpose.
Since our founding in 2011, Patriots and Paws has helped over 9,300 Veterans, Active Duty, and Reservists through over 115,000 volunteers hours to distribute over $7.4 million dollars in household goods. In 2021 we remained open during Covid-19, serving 1153 Veterans/Active Duty/Reservists. We completed 1458 donation pickups, this doesn't include all of the donors drop offs.
