Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Apr 25, 2017 - Operation Build Up is excited to announce that they have reached a key period of growth and is now able to assist high risk veterans throughout the state of New York. When asked about the expansion Justin Cogswell of Operation Build Up stated that “One of our main goals since inception has been to be able to purchase and fix enough vehicles to reach the New York City area. Now that we are confident enough in our ability to handle the workflow of vehicles we are excited to make an impact there as well.”
An article published by The Boston Globe in March of 2016 said that five years ago New York City counted 4,677 combat veterans that were currently in shelters, transitional housing, or on the streets. With one of the highest number of high risk veterans in the country New York City is an area that could see a significant impact if we were able to get these veterans back on their feet one by one.
Justin Cogswell stated that “Even though our current output is not where it will be, we are on course to assist no less than 30 veterans with vehicles this year which is our first year of exisitance, and double next year. The biggest factor that is preventing our rapid growth is the lack of community support by way of donations. If we can win over the community and get local donations from its citizens and sponsorships from its companies, then the sky is really the limit.”
