4th Annual Solidarity Ride The time is near! The 4th annual Solidarity ride is just a few weeks away now. This year the committee chose to support 3 Military / Veteran organizations.
1) The RI Honor Flight where we have committed to sponsor the entire cost for the flight and transportation to fly predominately WWII veterans down to DC for the day to be recognized for there Heroism and visit all the monuments.
2) The Rhode Island Military Organization who Operate the Military Lounge at TF Green Airport and assist Veterans in a host of other needs such as heating assistance, meals and such.
3) Rhode Island Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. As you know, 21 Veterans take their lives every day in this nation. This group is affiliated with the Dept of Veterans Affairs and the DOD. They also of course come to the rescue of all in need.
None of this is at all possible without you! Please consider making a donation to the Ride, Sponsoring the ride, donating a raffle prize, purchasing a T-shirt or simply coming by to cheer the riders on! In the past 3 years, you have helped us raise over $52,000 for the most vulnerable in our society. The best part is after we pay for the very raw costs, every dime is donated to the causes.
To further clarify, Local 2323 and 99 donate much of that money for the raw costs also... in other words, whereas we ask for support up and down the coast to help fund this, I don't think it is possible to find another event that raises this much and gives all of it away to the cause.
Please share this often, member clicking on Meme saying you support Veterans really does not do much.. this actually does!
