SNYDERSVILLE, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – An organization that helps homeless veterans can continue it’s good work, thanks to community support.
Pocono Mountain Harley Davidson presented Valor Clinic with a check Friday morning for nearly $8,000 dollars. Valor Clinic runs Paul’s House in Jonas, which provides homeless veterans with a temporary place to stay.
Pocono Mountain Harley Davidson holds an annual charity ride to benefit a different organization each year. This year close to 400 bikers rode to the Pocono Raceway, where they took a few laps around the track.
“Bikers have a real big heart. They were just ecstatic to get on that Pocono Race track. They just love it. It’s like their bucket list thing,” says Linda Schlier, Pocono Mountain Harley Davidson.
“We can’t survive without community support. We’re a grassroots organization. We don’t get any big funding from the state or the county,” explains Mark Baylis, Founder, Paul’s House.
It costs about $20 dollars a day to feed and house one veteran. This donation allows Paul’s House to continue operating for the next two months.
