Founded in 2008 Veterans Assisted Living 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 food and hygiene products. When donating food, it’s important to remember that cans must be accessible without a can opener and need no refrigeration. We also need weatherproof insulated coats and pants, insulated weather-resistant boots 800 grams or more, weatherproof insulated gloves and fleece hats, warm underwear and socks, 2-man dome tents, sleeping bags rated to zero degrees and mats. We’re constantly looking for gently used furniture as well. When the weather becomes warmer, we can use rain gear and waterproof shoes/boots.”
“Throughout the past two years, our team has supported numerous non-profit organizations. Not only is it a way of giving back to the community, it also helps us to learn the various needs. We also get to know the people who invest their time and talent, who help fulfill those needs. We will be collecting items from February 1 through March 6. Items can be dropped off at our office at 1286 N. Ninth Street, Stroudsburg.” states Michele A. Frailey-Miller, Chief Operating Officer.
