Since launching Vehicles for Vets, Basil has been able to put 19 deserving veterans and 3 deserving First Responders into a brand new vehicle, plus we’ve raised over $250,000 for the Veterans One-Stop Center of Western New York and various other local veterans organizations.
The Veterans One-Stop Center of Western New York is a BBB Accredited Charity and is proud to be the region’s premier veterans service and advocacy agency, empowering our veterans, their families, and service members in their transition from military to civilian life.
“The Veterans One-stop Center is grateful and excited to partner with the Basil Family Dealerships on the Vehicle for Vets and First Responders campaign to reward a deserving veteran with a vehicle and support our local veteran community,” said Adam Howard, President and CEO of the Veteran’s One-Stop Center. “The monies raised will empower and support the over 11,500 veterans that the Veterans One-stop Center serves throughout all of Western New York.”
The Veterans One-stop Center provides a multitude of free services and programs such as benefits and financial counseling, education and employment, the military peer-to-peer support program We Are Dwyer, and the military family program Operation COM (Children of the Military), and more.
“We are so grateful for the veterans, active military members, and first responders who pledge their lives to our country and community. We want to give back as much as possible and we’re honored to be able to do so.”
