ProVet USA to Join Operation Gridiron at the 2021 New York City Veterans Week Celebration in Times Square


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ProVet USA announced today that it will be joining Operation Gridiron, T-Mobile, Starbucks, Griffon Holdings, Bob Woodruff Foundation and others for the benefit of NYC veterans charities at the 2021 New York City Veterans Week celebration in Times Square on November 10th and 11th from 10:00 am-9:00 pm.

Veterans Week events promote the issues facing our Veterans and their families and provide them with the resources to transition and succeed in the civilian world. The NYC Veterans Day Parade will be the centerpiece of this annual citywide initiative, which encompasses the efforts of a wide range of partner organizations and corporations.

Charitable donations will be received from the six ROLL stationary bike competitions — with the computerized course and races displayed prominently on the Times Square Screen — as well as between celebrities, local media and members of our armed forces, including NYC Department of Veterans Services Commissioner James Hendon.

All NY sports teams and many local news and media celebrities have been contacted through the help of the Mayor’s Office and WABC-TV, who will be televising the Veterans Day Parade.

In addition, an expected crowd of over 350,000 people will witness the event which steps off at around 12 pm from 25th Street and Fifth Avenue. It then proceeds north, up Fifth Avenue. 

This year’s Grand Marshal is U.S. Air Force veteran and local hero Kevin Carrick. A retired Senior Master Sergeant, Kevin served over two decades as an elite Pararescueman (“PJ”) with the 106th Rescue Wing based in nearby Westhampton

(Long Island), NY.
