Clear Path for Veterans Launches COVID-19 Community Task Force

Friend of Clear Path,

As the world responds to the coronavirus, Clear Path for Veterans continues to fulfill its mission of serving those who serve. As we all face new challenges and changes to our daily lives, we want you to know that Clear Path for Veterans is here for our community.

What We Are Doing
Our staff is actively assisting military members and their families to include: Veterans, active duty, reserve, and guard members in the 23 Upstate New York counties we serve. We have adapted the delivery of our programs and services to adhere to the guidelines mandated by health officials in order to keep those we serve and members of our staff safe.

We understand that this is a trying time for everyone and that we all must come together to serve those in need. Due to the pandemic, we are experiencing revenue shortfalls because of decreased donations and the inability to hold major fundraising events.
Clear Path relies on private donations to execute its mission and right now your support will allow us to continue meeting the increased needs of those in our communities affected by the pandemic. Donations can be made by phone at 315-687-3300, online here, or by mail to 1223 Salt Springs Road, Chittenango, NY 13037. We are all in this together and we are grateful to you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Alexander J. Behm
Executive Director
