On Veterans Day, we honor the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces for their courage and sacrifice for our country. The sacrifices and service of our Veterans are not lost on Rothco, and that is why we have made a steadfast commitment to giving back to the local men and women of our military.
For the fifth year in a row, Rothco has collaborated with a local organization here on Long Island called General Needs to provide boots to our homeless veterans in our area. This Veterans Day, Rothco donated over $30,000 in military and cold weather boots to Veterans across Long Island. Over the past few years, Rothco has donated thousands of boots to our military veterans.
While our small act will not pay them back for all, they have done for our country. It is a reminder that even the smallest act of kindness can go a long way. That is why Rothco is always looking for ways to help our Veterans. In addition to the project with General Needs, Rothco also collaborates with the Suffolk County United Veterans Organization. As a local company, Rothco realizes how important it is for us to give back to the community that has helped us grow and honor the men and women of our military for their service today and every day.
