I am lucky enough to have had the opportunity to volunteer at Patriots and Paws . I had not even the slightest Idea how much this organization and the founder herself had to offer out Veterans. The impact on the community and value this organization holds is important in so many ways.
Our Veterans deserve any and all help they can get while they are transitioning or are in any kind of need of assistance. The founder works non stop to provide these men and women with anything from clothes to household needs for them and their families.
I am a better person for spending my time here and meeting the other volunteers that give their time to show support.
I've been a volunteer for this organization for almost a year, and I have become very loyal to its mission. Donations of furniture, linens, dishes, and small appliances are made available to needy and homeless veterans. it's a great way to aid those individuals who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Special events throughout the year raise funds to support the cause, and the public is invited to these functions. Check us out!
As a volunteer for Patriots and Paws, I feel honored to help some of our American heroes in a small way. The organization is all volunteer and no-one works more or harder than the founder. I am astonished at the donations that are received and the number of Veteran families who benefit from this. Anyone looking for a non-profit to donate to and believe in, this is it. All the volunteers I have had the privilege to work with have been pleasant and hard working. The donors are grateful to be able to give to such a needed and good cause.
Patriots and Paws really succeeds to be a positive contributing member to the community. The organizational focus is to help as many of our service members (veterans, reservists, and active members) in the best way possible. Patriots and Paws is a place to feel as though your efforts are valued and appreciated.
As a true non profit; they maintain full transparency and traceability of their operational costs. No unscrupulous activities or intentions here. Just a really great place to contribute your time and/or money.
They are striving to grow and be better; to help and serve as many people as possible.
I have had the honor to volunteer for a truly Veteran organization. They help not only for their house hold goods are a wealth of resources to aid our heroes. They make sure donated goods go to veterans. they never sell things. they are 100% volunteer run and depend on donations to keep the warehouse going.
They treat our military as American heroes.
Patriots and Paws helps our Veterans and Military families with the household necessities they need, The furniture and appliances that are donated to Patriots and Paws are then given free of charge to the Veteran or Military family that needs them. This organization not only raises the spirits of those receiving the items, but the volunteers of Patriots and Paws are working for the greater good of our so deserving Veterans and Military Families!!! I am more than proud to be a volunteer of this worthwhile organization. As a sister of a Viet Nam veteran, I know firsthand what our veterans have gone through and continue to go through, and life is much tougher today to make it all work. Thank you Patriots and Paws, Penny and Linda for establishing this non-profit, and for all that you do!
As a volunteer of patriots and paws. I love what penny does for those that have served and that are serving. Its brings me joy that i now get to help out these vets and return the favor. The whole set up is wonderful they get to walk in and see all the new items we have been collecting through the week.
As a client and volunteer penny and the gang have more than showed what compassion and community service really means. Patriots and paws had shown me what just a little help can mean so much to others. As a veteran I am extremely glad they are there to help all service members. As a volunteer I get much satisfaction out of helping others and spreading the great word of Patriots and paws.
Patriots and Paws is an amazing nonprofit organization that has went out of there way to help me even though i'm just a volunteer. This is one of the few places where you go and can volunteer doing a lot of manual labor and it never gets tiresome. The greatest part about this place isn't just the friendly caring volunteers but also seeing the smiles on the faces of all the veterans we have helped and those yet to come. If you are a vet looking for assistance it is a great place to come. If your looking to volunteer your help will be actually appreciated and what better way to help then to give time to those who risked it all.
I approached this organization while working with americorps and I was thoroughly impressed with the responsiveness to the organization. Since I am also a vet I have received a warm welcome from the founder, Penny and have since then continued to volunteer with the organization by bringing vet clients that come to our offices in search of support. The feedback I get from our clients is overwhelmingly unanimous in the rise in morale and it is the kind of organization that I would like to continue to make allies in the quest to answer to the veteran homeless conflict that our society but most importantly our countries servicemen and servicewomen are faced with today. Thank you once again, Patriots and Paws.
