I am so appreciative and grateful for the help the Make it Count Foundation gave to me upon graduation from high school. i was able to meet with Mr. Reese and Mr. Corcoran and was given advice that will last me a lifetime. I look forward to keeping them updated on my college education and beyond, as I know I will never forget the help and guidance they have given me. I hope to someday be able to pay it forward as they have done for me, inspiring me to always make it count.
A great group of people helping local military families and children. Doing home renovations, supporting local children sports programs and providing school backpacks for the needy.
Make It Count brings the energy of a visionary leader to help members of our military with housing needs. Nothing contributes more to the dignity and well being of our returning heroes than safe comfortable housing. Those of us on the board are proud to be part of this great effort
Make it Count Foundation has touched the lives of many, for me it has been an eye-opening experience. Everyday life sometimes takes over the small important things life has to offer. But Make It Count has allowed me to put some things aside and reach out to help those in need. I feel very fortunate to have been part of this organization and plan to continue to help in whatever way I can to improve our community.
What the Make It Count foundation is doing is just great. Helping local Vets in small ways that make a huge difference in their lives. Seeing the improvements made at the VFW and the shelter make me proud to volunteer my time for Make It Count. It is a small foundation working hard to raise money to help the people that serve our country.
A member of my office staff was involved in the building of a ramp for a veteran who was having difficulty getting in and out of his residence. He told us when we were done that we don't realize how the smallest obsticals effect our daily routine. He said the ramp would give more freedom and independence. His gratitude made us more determined to help whenever we could. Keep up the good work and please notify me for future projects.
Make It Count Foundation is an incredible labor of love of it's founder Jon Reese. This non profit was created simply for one purpose: to help people in the Long Island community by providing resources for optimal health, housing and education. I have experienced first hand how Make It Count makes a difference in peoples lives whether one is on the giving or receiving end. Make It Count Foundation transforms lives now, enabling those we influence to achieve their own personal potential and in turn, help others do the same. The Make It Count partners include United Way of Long Island, Great South Bay YMCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island, Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk, VFW of Patchogue and Suffolk County United Veterans. Whether it's a child, veteran or someone in need, Make It Count will ensure that your donations are put where they are needed most.
One of the things this organization has done this year is helped a local vetrans organization with remodeling plans to make their facility easily accessible for people with physical disabilities. Make It Count provided materials and labor to get the job done. It was a great effort and the improvement is appreciated by the entire community.
I am familiar with the work that Mark Sagliocca does with the Make It Count foundation and I am very impressed with the results. In my opinion we do not do nearly enough for our vets and it is fantastic to see an organization like Make It Count helping those that have sacrificed so much.
My husband and I have been hosting “James” an injured serviceman at our home in Vermont for 5 years now. He comes for a ski weekend through the Wounded Warrior Program. As we have gotten to know James it became clear that going back to college was going to prove to be a big financial burden. Through the help of the Make It Count Foundation, we were able to offer James some assistance with his tuition. This was just the motivation he needed to get back in the classroom and finish his degree.
James is now married and owns his own house. He attributes much of his success to the help of the Make it Count Foundation.
I was approached by a very close friend about the Make it Count foundation. Upon hearing the stories about the good work that this organization has done for our military men and women, I knew I had to be involved in some way. The sincere, unselfish people that I personally know who are invloved with this organization would give the shirt off their back for our military personnel. They would never be looking for any kind of pay back or political favor. I know that for a fact ! These are the type of people that have your back just as our solders do for their fellow soldeirs out there on the front line. This foundation truly believes that it needs to do as much possible to help our military personnel re-acclimate themselves into civilian life. Our men and women of the military need and deserve more Foundations like this for all they have done for this great country !
As a supplier to the building industry, I was able to provide materials to the foundation to support two of their projects. Both projects were professionally organized and seem to have gone very smoothly. I look forward to visiting one of these jobs in the near future.
