Shop Seeks Donations for Troops Tribute Project

Jun 27, 2017

Deer Park, New York-based Paul’s Rods & Restos is building a Pro-Touring 1965 Mustang Convertible to be auctioned off with the proceeds from the car’s sale going to Homes for our Troops.

Homes for our Troops is a privately-funded nonprofit organization that builds mortgage-free, specially-adapted homes nationwide for severely injured veterans post-9/11, to enable them to rebuild their lives. The majority of these veterans have sustained severe injuries such as multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). The goal is to help restore some of the freedom and independence that our veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and giving them an opportunity to focus on their recovery, family and rebuilding of their lives, according to the group.

“Paul’s Rods & Restos is proud to be able to give back to our veterans by building the Pro-Touring 1965 Mustang Convertible knowing it will result in a better life for one of our heroic veterans,” the shop stated in a news release emailed to followers. “We encourage our friends to help us and provide funds and/or parts to subsidize the costs of the build.”

The shop has established a separate account for all contributions toward this project on behalf of Homes for Our Troops. Checks can be made payable to: Paul’s Rods & Restos c/o Homes for our Troops at 131 Brook Avenue, Deer Park, NY 11729

“Your donation will be used for parts and materials to assist in the building of the Pro-Touring 1965 Mustang Convertible. All additional funds will be presented in a check to Homes for our Troops upon completion of auction,” according to the shop. “Please note that Paul’s Rods & Restos is not a 501(c)(3) charity. If you have any questions or want to discuss other ways you can help support our project or Homes for our Troops, please do not hesitate to call.”
