“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” ― Maya Angelou
Last week Rothco had the opportunity to host a summer BBQ for the local Veterans Home in our community that Rothco has adopted called The John J. Lynch Veterans Place. Over the past few year's Rothco and its employees through our Christmas Charity Program and other special events have come together to support this amazing organization; which offers a variety of housing options and support to Suffolk County, NY Veterans.
Rothco is always looking for ways to give back to our local community and we can't think of a better way to support our community than to give back to the men & women who sacrifice so much to represent our country.
Last week's event was extra special, not only did we get to put our BBQ skills to the test, members of Rothco's team got to meet with the Veterans and tour the facility. The Veterans graciously welcomed 20+ Rothco team members into their homes and showed us around the facilities. We received a tour of their rooms, rec area and special garden area (that was recently updated by Rothco - but more on that another time).
As part of the event Rothco also made sure everyone there walked away with some free Rothco gear, each member received a brand new Operator Cap with Rothco's Hook & Loop Patch and Rothco T-Shirt.
The members of Suffolk County United Veterans Project were even kind enough to present Rothco with a plaque in recognition of our contributions.
For more information on the Suffolk County United Veterans Project and ways you can support the charity visit their site here. If you are looking for more ways to support they are also hosting a special event called The Kick Stands Up Motorcycle Poker Run & Car Show for Homeless Veterans happening July 25th, in Centereach, NY.
