Helping Local Veterans for Veterans Day

Today, Veterans Day, we honor the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces for their courage and sacrifice for our country. The sacrifices and service of our veterans are not lost on Rothco, and that is why we have made a steadfast commitment to give back to the local men and women of our military. In partnership with a local organization General Needs, which provides necessities like clothing, toiletries and bedding to homeless veterans; Rothco was able to donate over 730 boots to homeless veterans across Long Island. The boots will be hand delivered to them on Veterans Day by members of General Needs and Rothco. 

Being able to help our heroes is a truly humbling experience.  The thought that our boots could help a soldier who has fallen on hard times is truly amazing. While our small act, will in no way pay them back for all that they have done for our country. It is a reminder that even the smallest act of kindness, can go a long way. That is why Rothco is always looking for ways to help our Veterans. In addition to the project with General Needs, Rothco also works in close collaboration with the Suffolk County United Veterans Organization. As a local company, Rothco realizes how important it is for us to give back to the community that has helped us grow and to honor the men and women of our military for their service today, and every day.
