I had an opportunity to volunteer with Hope For The Warriors this year at their Above & Beyond program. They are a fantastic group to work with and are very passionate about supporting veterans. As a veteran myself (USAF 99-03), I know that they provide excellent services and programs that are greatly appreciated by those who participate. If you are able to support this organization as a volunteer or by donating, I highly recommend it!

I volunteer with Hope for the Warriors and it is a truly wonderful organization with great staff and clients. I have been able to interact with many of their clients and the experience has been very meaningful. The range of services they offer clients is remarkable and can be a lifesaver for many people. I am always telling contacts I have in the local military and VA community here about it so they can direct potential clients there. The staff that I've interacted with are very nice and truly care about the veterans they serve - I've worked with/met Connie Morinello, Nicole Papadopoulos and Tina Atherall and they are all great! I recommend them highly!

I decided to volunteer to raise money for this notable cause and represent them in the 2012 NYC ING Marathon. As soon as I received my first email from our race sponsor (Sarah Wilkens), everything has been running smoothly. The charity website is simple and easy to navigate. The ability to send bulk emails with their templates for donation requests is great and the tracking metrics are even better. Sarah has been a great sponsor answering all of my questions and keeping all the volunteers informed and motivated. I hope to meet some of them at one of the training sessions or races before the marathon.

Last year I was introducted to Hope for the Warriors . It was their mission mission statement and the support they provide our military families that I decided to volunteer. I enjoy volunteering with the group whether it is processing registration forms, introducting key members to my firm's Veterans group or participating in a run/walk. There is no doubt that Hope for the Warriors will continue to gain recognition and maturity. I look forward to working with the group in the future.

In 2011 I have had the opportunity to volunteer at several events where Hope for the Warriors sponsored warrior participation. It was a wonderful experience for me and I plan to continue as a volunteer as needed. Warrior lives are being enriched by this organization. They are finding ways to fill the gaps that might be otherwise overlooked by other government agencies and/or non-profit agencies.

Over the past three years I have had the pleasure of being able to be a volunteer for Hope for the Warriors. I have been witness to an organization that truly cares for the people it serves and does the most it can with the resources available to it. I have seen the staff go above and beyond what is expected of them on several occaisions. Including one time when after working twelve hours on a fundraising event and after everyone had gone home they drove a service member an hour out of their way just so he didn't have to sit alone waiting for a cab. You don't find that kind of dedication everyday and I think it is indicative of the values to which this organization aspires. Hope for the Warriors is everything you wish a charity to be. Which is why I continue to volunteer and support them.

For the last 3 years, I've had the pleasure of running for Hope for the Warriors in the ING NYC Marathon. This will be my second year volunteering for the Big Apple Run for the Warriors, taking place in New York City. What a wonderful organization for such a worthy cause. The people are a delight--some of the nicest I have ever met. I feel honored to be a part of this organization and look forward to taking part in many more events to come!

I volunteered for the first time for Hope for the Warriors at the Long Island 5K/10K Run. It was a great experience - all of the employees I met were very kind and focused on ensuring the event went off without a hitch (which it did). It was busy, and they were able to direct me to where they needed the most help. I was able to meet with some of the veterans that they are helping, which was great. Overall, I would highly recommend this charity to all: service members, volunteers and donors.

Hope for the Warriors is a unique organization whose commitment to meeting the needs of wounded service members, their families and families of the fallen is largely unparalleled. As a volunteer at dozens of events and a participant in a number of their programs, I have been able to witness the dedication and sincerity of the Hope for the Warriors staff. The success of its programs, its low administrative costs, and the number of repeat - volunteers, sponsors, and benefactors evinces an organization that has garnered the support of the general public by fulfilling its mission on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to donate my time or my money to Hope for the Warriors in the future – this is clearly a special organization.

I have volunteered for a few initiatives that Hope for the Warriors has spearheaded to bring assistance to severly injured service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. One specific initiative involved a quadruple amputee from Staten Island, Brendan Morocco. Hope for the Warriors teamed up with the Stephen Siller Foundation, the FDNY and a few other organizations to furnish a home for this dedicated hero. Hope for the Warriors worked tirelessly to leverage relationships that yielded donations of products and services to provide Brendan with an adapted environment that could aid in his recovery. H4W's efforts were truly incredible and executed with tremendous professionalism.
