Veteran (noun): 1. Defender of America and its freedom. 2. A patriot who shows great courage and bravery. 3. Knows that freedom is never free. 4. A hero to their country.
Our final volunteering event as part of our “Three 3’s” program was taking the day to celebrate the very people that define the definition of Veteran. The EP team headed to the Commonwealth Veterans Residence in the Bronx for a day of games, food and thanking those that have served our very country. This effort was organized with Volunteers of America – Greater NY who are the largest provider of supportive housing for in New York State.
We were honored to spend a day with those that served our country every day of the year.
