UTICA -- In the midst of prepping thanksgiving dinner baskets for veterans and their families, the Veterans Outreach Center received $4,600 check.
The check was raised from an ATV ride in September.
Thanksgiving basket pick up is less than a week away. The Veteran Outreach Center is still in need of turkeys, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, and more! You can contact the center's front desk at 315-765-0975 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upstate ATV Club hopes everyone sees the outreach center as a charity to get behind.
"I’ve gotten a lot of advantages from being in the military for my four years, I’ve gotten a lot of benefits from it so it's nice to be able to give back," said William Ware of the ATV club. "I had a great family to help me when i got out but not everybody does and sometimes you need help, and this is a great place to get some help."
Upstate ATV Club hopes to make the ride an annual event.
