Since 2013, Annual Heroes Run has been a fundraiser in the Greater Monroe County area of New York hosted by the Patriot Guard Riders of New York. The event would begin with a memorial ride (motorcycles and vehicles) to a dedication site where a brief ceremony honoring a hero (KIA) would take place. Normally a remembrance object such as a bench, or marker would be placed bearing the name of the hero being honored that year. The ride then would continue back to the event location for food, entertainment and raffles.
Because of Covid-19, we are uncertain what this new year will bring in the way of fundraising events. As with most, we are awaiting vacines and information from authorities on the ability to have events.
Our Help On The Homefront program is alive and well and thankfully we are continuing to assist our veterans in need.
Help on the Homefront (HOTH) is a volunteer outreach program of Patriot Guard Riders of New York, Inc., which assists our military heroes and their families. Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude for their selfless, heroic acts. Through our HOTH programs, we can assist these heroes who may now need our help.
There are currently two programs under the HOTH umbrella.
Veteran's Financial Assistance: The Veteran's Financial Assistance is a volunteer outreach program that may provide a one-time financial support to U.S. Armed Forces veterans who require some financial assistance due to an unforeseen financial hardship brought about by circumstances or events that are beyond the veteran's control.
Veteran's Furniture Assistance: May provide a one-time delivery of new furniture to U.S. Armed Forces veterans who are in financial need and have been a resident of an in-house program with Department of Veterans Affairs or other valid veteran agency.
(A veteran may only qualify and receive assistance through one of the above programs.)
We are only able to continue supporting our veterans through HOTH and its programs by the generous donations from the community. Please consider donating today.
