AH Marengo Jr Veterans Foundation
I founded this "blanket drive" as a non profit in 2011 because state regulations did not allow the donation of used blankets anymore. I've held this blanket drive for 11 years collecting blankets, warm clothes, sundries and personal hygiene items and donating them to shelters that help homeless veterans. As a non profit I have the privlege to further fund raise throughout the year to assist existing organizations such as Gardner Mass' Montachusett Regional Outreach Center in purchasing brand new blankets but also in holding drives to help them gather items that veterans coming off of homelessness need to fill a home. I will be working with the community offering them opportunities to donate to assist the veterans in our community.
The drive is named for my father, Alfred H. Marengo, Jr a veteran of the Korean war.
