Paramus Veterans Home Bus Fund Project Continues

Thursday, May 28th, 2015 @ 12:23PM

As you know the Legion kicked off a Bergen County effort to raise $85,000 for a much needed new bus for the Paramus Veteran’s Home.  The project which kicked off officially October 25 th, 2013 to date has raised $174,186.48. The first bus was delivered to the home in April 2014, and the 2nd bus was delivered March 4, 2015. And we are now working on a 3rd  bus which we are hoping to deliver on Veteran’s Day November 2015.  In order to reach this goal we need to collect an additional $42,340 by August 2015.

 

Any organization who raises a total of $5,000 will have their logo appear on the bus. So far the Elks, Rotary and the Legion will have their logo appear on the bus. In addition the two organizations with the highest total donation will have their logo appear in the Front of the Bus. All donors will be recognized on a plaque presented to the home at the time of donation (if you donated previous next time at the home take a look at the two plaques already presented for your name) and all who donate $500 or more will be recognized on a plague mounted in the bus. This is a great opportunity to recognized a deceased friend or relative as we have had many donations is memory of and will include your name as well as the person you are donating in memory of.

 

Again anyone willing to make a donation can send a check made out to Bergen County American Legion Bus Fund, c/o Bob Salvini, 54 Thiem Ave Rochelle Park, NJ 07662 .

 

In addition for those who need to donate to a 501(C) 3 you can donate to American Legion Auxiliary Unit 170 at 33 W. Passaic St. Rochelle Park, NJ 07662. Please insure the donation is clearly marked for Bergen County American Legion Paramus Vet’s Home Bus Fund.

 

And should you have any questions feel free to email me at bobsalvini@att.net.

 

For God and Country,

“We Continue to Serve”
