They make sure veterans are directly affected by their efforts. Founders, board and employees keep no profit, use resources responsibly.
my business partner and i had the privilege of meeting with Brett and Alexa a few days back... a-maz-ing. Brett is a visionary (and possibly a genius) with a genuine heart for veterans and for his country. Alexa is fierce, supportive, and really seems to understand the business and technical side of Backpacks for Life. i'm immensely impressed with this dynamic duo and the genuine passion that fuels and informs what they are doing. there are no word... no word strong enough to express how highly i would recommend Backpacks for Life to anyone truly interested in making a substantial and positive difference in the life of a veteran. i can't wait to see what this team is able to accomplish. the sky is the limit.
The couple that ran the fundraiser I attended was very friendly and professional. They did a great job! Maybe be more aggressive with raffles, but that comes with practice.
Attended a paintmixnj event to benefit Backpacks for Life. Impressed with the founders passion to help our vets. Wonderful cause!
The organization is very well-run. The founders hav done a great job bringing awareness to homeless veterans. They have very engaging events that appeal to a large audience.
Sgt. Brett D'Alessandro and Alexa show their passion of giving back to the Veterans through example. I have seen their interaction with the Veterans when giving out the backpacks. They take the time to listen to each individual and hear their story. They go to speak at various organizations and are working at improving and fine tuning Backpacks for Life almost daily. I am truly impressed and taken back at what they do. Sgt. D'Alessandro said " he wont be satisfied until the day comes when there will not be a need for organizations like Backpacks for Life because when that day comes all Veterans needs will have then been taken care of". Please support this wonderful non profit
A truly passionate man who created an amazing organization to serve those who have served our country.
