CHITTENANGO — Clear Path for Veterans has been selected by SYR Clothing Co., a Syracuse street wear brand, as its featured Central New York nonprofit of the month.
Throughout January, a percentage of each order placed on the SYR Clothing Co. website will be donated back to Clear Path for Veterans.
SYR Clothing Co. officials say since its founding in 2019, the company has been committed to giving back to its community. Its mission is centered around increasing the sense of pride in Syracuse through clothing designs that are inspired by all the great things the Salt City has to offer, while also giving back to the community, the company said in its announcement. In the past, their efforts have been in support of organizations such as the Syracuse Rescue Mission.
Their dedication to the Veteran community also extends into their support of Wyatt Weil, a LaFayette High School graduate diagnosed with Philadelphia Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia just days before graduating as a member of the United States Marine Corps.
“Giving back to Central New York nonprofits is a major part of the SYR Clothing Co. mission,” said Matt and Taylor Sourwine, founders of SYR Clothing Co. “We want to make a difference and we know donations are critical in sustaining many programs and services that are needed by those in our local communities. We have the most respect for those who serve(d) for our country so it made a lot of sense for us to partner with Clear Path for Veterans given all the support programs and services they have available.”
“Clear Path for Veterans is honored to have been chosen by Matt and Taylor, whose sense of service and community pride is echoed in the culture here at Clear Path. We are most grateful to them and the SYR Clothing Co.,” said Clear Path’s CEO, Bill Smullen.
