HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights Soccer Association is partnering with A Hero's Welcome-NNJ to give back to military personnel and dogs.
With the success of its food drive at the Soccer Swarm in early September, the group was looking for another way to give back.
"With the size of our organization, we have the ability to try and do more for those in need," said Mike Karcic, HHSA president. "The HHSA Board is looking at other opportunities to help. With Veterans Day around the corner, we felt this was somewhere we could help. The HHSA has volunteers who have served this country as well as board members that have had family members who have also served."
The group decided that one of the ways to give back was to raise money for veterans. They spoke to local members who served and were directed to Rose Pagan, Director for A Hero's Welcome-NNJ. Pagan told them about the Puppy Rescue Mission, an organization that helps reunite soldiers with the dog they have befriended while deployed. The group's slogan is "Soldiers saving puppies - Puppies saving soldiers!"
"We immediately wanted to help out," said Karcic.
The youth sports organization is selling three styles of camouflage shirts that can be personalized with the HHSA Crest or Aviators Soccer logo. The shirts can also be personalized by adding Mom, Dad, Grandma, or Grandpa. For every shirt that is sold, HHSA will donate the proceeds for those shirts to Puppy Rescue Mission. The deadline to purchase shirts is Thursday, October 10, 2019.

"We hope the families of the HHSA and Hasbrouck Heights see the opportunity we have to help those who have served our country," said Karcic.
