The Fenimore team worked with the Veterans & Community Housing Coalition to provide 10 ‘Welcome Home to a Hero’ baskets for women veterans that are transitioning into permanent housing. Each basket was filled with pots and pans, baking sheets, oven mitts, comforter sets, sheets, pillows, cleaning supplies, shower curtains, towels and more. Our hope was to make ‘Home Sweet Home’ a little sweeter by allowing these veterans to spend more time enjoying this milestone and less time worrying about purchasing items they need.
The Veterans & Community Housing Coalition, Inc assists and supports veterans in our 7 surrounding counties by providing temporary and permanent housing as well as a food pantry. These housing options include The Guardian House, which is the only supportive housing program for homeless female veterans in New York State.
