At our core, we understand that a simple act of support can make a world of difference. Our mission is to support and empower the active duty and veteran military families of our communities as they navigate the challenges of service and civilian life. We firmly believe in providing assistance that empowers individuals rather than fostering dependency. The unwavering belief in honoring the sacrifices of our military personnel resonates strongly within our community, contributing significantly to our organization’s success. Generous donations from our community enable us to deliver the necessary aid and support our veterans require on their journey to stability and well-being.

Powerfully funded through the graciousness of ShopRite, the Committee steps in to assist local Hudson Valley military families in times of financial distress. The Committee can assist locally approved applicants by directly paying utility bills, vehicle repairs, child care, or other expenses that will alleviate immediate stress during difficult times.

Please note we are not a national organization, and are not equipped to handle requests outside of the NY, NJ, PA areas, with priority reserved for Orange, Ulster, Sullivan, Dutchess and Rockland counties in NY.

The Committee also offers scholarships for members of the military community to participate in therapeutic horseback riding.

We have new initiatives including scholarships for graduating military dependents.
