A Day For Our Veterans – AOR & Valu

We’re always looking for opportunities to give back to the communities we do business in and this time, we found the perfect one. Our North Tonawanda store at Nash Rd. hosted “A Day For Our Veterans”, partnering with Alpha & The Omega Retreat Inc. to help local veterans return to civilian life after serving in active duty.

On Saturday, July 28th, Valu volunteered to raise money for AOR with the help of our customers. With a hot dog sale, donations for care packages, product giveaways (including a Broil Mate Grill!) and raffle funds, we raised close to $1000 for our veterans!

Special guest and author, Jessica Cassick made a visit to talk about her children’s book called “Without Words” which she produced with AOR. The book covers the challenges that come with having a parent serving in the military and the changes that arise when they return to civilian life.

We hope to be able to partner with AOR and hold this event again next year! Thanks to our team and customers for making this event such a success!
