Boots on the Ground NY is a team of Veterans that care about taking care of America's Veterans. Boots on the ground Ny collects and delivers food and furniture for Veterans and their families. Boots on the ground ny believes that No Veteran should be hungry or sleeping on the floor. They ship care packages monthly to the military units that don’t have access to supplies. They provide what They can to those that need it most. They open up Their doors and hearts to any Veteran that needs it. Veterans are not just a last name and case number to Boots on the Ground Ny, They build and maintain friendships. They're there for the families of the deployed. They're there for the families of those taken in the Service of their Country.
