Supporting our troops can take many forms. You can donate your time, energy and prays.
Most of the City of Yonkers veterans service organizations have individual programs throughout the year to support our veterans, soldiers in harms way, and their families. Please contact any one of the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars or American Veterans Posts in the City. Many of their programs involve going to nursing homes, raising funds to buy telephone cards for our troops, and many ceremonies during the year. If you need assistance contacting one of them near you, please call us at (914) 377-6700.
Remember, due to current world situation, you can not send a package to any soldier. You must have a specific individual soldiers name and address. The Charles N. Bajart American Legion Post 1122 sends packages to individual soldiers with specific items that can be used by anyone. If you would like to help, the lead volunteer is Eileen Camerino. For a list of items and the associated costs for shipping you can contact the Bajart Post at (914) 457-3835. Their address is 840 McLean Ave, Yonkers, NY 10704.
