Rochester comes together to support veterans

Added on Monday, August 27, 2018

The 2018 Tee It Up for the Troops event was a smashing success, raising thousands of dollars for veterans assistance programs in the Rochester area.

We at the Rochester Salvation Army are especially grateful to be included in this event that honors those who serve in our nation’s military. What an incredibly fun day of ringing out on the green.

Special thanks to Scheels, Tonna, Custom Alarm, and Hunt Electric for their contributions to a $1,000 Kettle Match, helping us to raise over $2,500 to help veterans through Salvation Army programs. From clothing and shoes, to housing, to health and elder care, The Salvation Army takes great pride in our long history of service to veterans. Thank you for helping us to continue that tradition.

Thank you also to Lynn Clarey and the whole Tee It Up for the Troops team for organizing such a fantastic and moving event. And thank you to the many, many volunteers who make this event possible each year.

Finally – and most importantly – thank you to the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to our country. We are truly grateful for your sacrifice.
