Kentucky Fried Wishes!
We are pleased to announce that Americans Supporting Armed Services
has had the honor of being chosen as 1 of 50 not-for-profit organizations across the country to receive a $10,000.00 grant.
General Manager Kat Pike of Kentucky Fried Chicken in Potsdam, a veteran herself, found interest in the work we do here in Northern NY Through her kind nomination in late June to enter our organization into the running for the Kentucky Fried Wishes Foundation annual grant program we began the journey to prove the need to support our military communities!
As we move forward this fall we will be out in the communities partnering with Kentucky Fried Chicken in Potsdam, NY and Kat and her team! ASAS will be looking to find ways to reach out to those who serve our country to recognize their service.🇺🇸
If you are a veteran in need of assistance please reach out to our organization @ asasus.org
The American Legion Post 79, American Legion Riders & Amvets Post 4 in Massena,NY
have gone above & beyond to help us achieve our mission over the last year.

Special thanks to these folks as we continue to work together!
On Sunday August 21,2022 Americans Supporting Armed Services was presented a check from the
American Legion Riders Chapter 925 in St. Lawrence County with proceeds from the
July 9,2022 Charity Ride. According to the Legion Riders representatives
the ride was the largest benefit run to date in the past 17 years for post 925 in Norfolk, NY.
These proceeds will allow us to continue the work we do to aide our veteran community.
We couldn't be prouder to be a part of this partnership.
Americans Supporting Armed Services gives our overwhelming thanks and gratitude to all who participated during this event. We can never show enough gratitude for the support we received to help bring awareness to our veteran communities and our 2022 cause Burn Pit Exposure Awareness.
We thank the Amvets Post 4 in Massena,NY for their generous donation
