Professional Clothing Drive for Veterans

New York State Senator Steve Rhoads is teaming up with Military Blue Star Mothers NY 14 to help young veterans in need of professional clothes. Military Blue Star Mothers NY 14 is a local organization dedicated to supporting and honoring our military service members and their families. As a group of mothers who have sons and daughters who are currently serving or have served in the United States Armed Forces, they understand the importance of providing resources and support to those who have bravely served our country.

From March 1st through April 1st Senator Rhoads and Military Blue Star Mothers NY 14 will be collecting professional clothes to support young veterans in New York looking to start their professional careers and dress for success. New or lightly used dress clothes will be accepted like dress shirts, dress pants, ties, suits, overcoats, sports jackets, blazers, dress socks, dress shoes, vests, and belts. This initiative aims to not only provide these young veterans with the necessary attire to succeed in their job interviews and professional settings, but also to show our support and appreciation for their service to our country. State Senator Steve Rhoads and Military Blue Star Mothers NY 14 hope to make a positive impact on the lives of these young veterans and help them transition into civilian life with confidence and success. Senator Rhoads encourages everyone to take a moment to clean out their closets and donate to this worthy cause, because every little bit helps in making a difference in the lives of our veterans. He also thanks Verity Van Lines for their support in providing the collection boxes to make this drive successful.

Senator Rhoads said, “We are going to make it a March to remember our military heroes! Our veterans have sacrificed so much for our freedoms, and it is our duty to support them in any way we can. This professional clothing drive is just one small way we can give back to those who have given so much. The drive will not only benefit the veterans, but it will also bring the community together to support our heroes as well as serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made by our brave service members and the importance of giving back to those who have defended our country.”
