(East Stroudsburg)  During their December board meeting, members of the Big Pocono Ski Club presented an $800.00 check to Veteran and Co-Founder Mark Baylis of VALOR Clinic Foundation.  “We are so appreciative of your support.  These funds will be used to help achieve our mission,” says Baylis.

Founded in 2008 Veterans Assisted Out Reach (VALOR) Clinic Foundation, is an organization for Veterans to help other Veterans to navigate through the process of recovering and rebuilding. VALOR reaches out to Veterans to provide shelter, food, supplies, and access to healthcare.  In addition, VALOR has spearheaded the creation of a specialized program to address Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) called Veterans Unstoppable.

Baylis adds,” We’re always looking for donated items such as weatherproof insulated coats and pants, insulated weather-resistant boots 800 grams or more, weatherproof insulated gloves and fleece hats, warm underwear an socks, 2-man dome tents, sleeping bags rated to zero degrees and mats.  We also accept furniture, specific food and hygiene items. These items can be dropped off at two locations: American Legion Post, Gilbert and VFW, Fawn Road, East Stroudsburg.”

“We have invited veterans from VALOR to speak to our Club on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and resources available in our area for veterans. We plan to meet on Thursday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Chateau Resort and Conference Center in Tannersville. The public is invited,” states Bill Wenton, Club President.
