Big 80s Bash = Opportunity to Reach Out & Make New Friends

There was lots of neon, rubics cubes, and hair band music on February 1, and WNYHeroes was there to educate, inform and offer one lucky raffle winner 10 lottery tickets!

Supporters Get Well Deserved Recognition

Supporters Get Well Deserved Recognition

January 14, 2019 provided WNYHeroes with the perfect opportunity to say “Thanks” to at least some of our partners and backers. Rob and Kristi Moore (top left) can reaffirm anyone’s faith in the goodness we all possess with the work they do, as does Dan Hansel (top right) of Amton Auto & Truck, Cliff Kenzia (bottom left) of Kenzia Tire & Auto Service, and Pat Brown (bottom right) of HSBC’s Valor initiative.

The Right Dog for the Job

The Right Dog for the Job

Empire Animal Rescue Society out of Salamanca, NY has provided WNYHeroes with our newest service dog. In the not-to-distant future, the dog on the left will be paired with a Veteran and begin training, like the one on the right. Proper training is critical because trained or not, if a dog misbehaves, business owners do reserve the right to have a dog removed from a given establishment without fear of legal retribution. That’s why our dogs go through a lengthy and rigorous training regimen, the cost of which is covered by our Pawsitive For Heroes program thanks to the generosity of local private and corporate contributions. This program gets no state or federal assistance.

To Salute, or Not Salute after Veterans Leave the Service

To Salute, or Not Salute after Veterans Leave the Service

Did you know the Defense Authorization Act of 2009 allows U.S. veterans to render the military hand-salute during the national anthem? Previously, hand-salutes were permitted during the raising, lowering, or the passing of the flag while wearing their organization’s headgear. Now that the guidelines have expanded, feel free to exercise your first amendment right while others do the same.
