November 1 - 10, 2017 at TD Bank
The American veterans of World War II sacrificed a lot for the safety of our country. North Country Honor Flight is dedicated to thanking them for that sacrifice. The organization exists to assist veterans with a trip to Washington D.C. to visit the national memorials. However, there is not much time. The average age of our World War II veterans is over 92. Of the sixteen million veterans who fought, only a million are still with us today. More become unable to travel each week. North Country Honor Flight is currently seeking funds to help pay for the flights and food for Veterans in upstate New York who will be going on the flight in May 2018.
On Wednesday, November 1st through Friday, November 10th we came together with the community at select Northern New York Store locations to collect donations for North Country Honor Flight. Visitors were greeted by employees and volunteers wearing Honor Flight t-shirts. Even the organization’s bus was on site to bring in support. Thanks to the community and a grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, together we raised a total of $7,207.81. The funds will help pay for flights and food for Veterans in upstate New York who will be going on the next flight scheduled for May 19, 2018.
