"It's my turn"

 ...to make a difference.

Together, How We Make A Difference -

Among the various initiatives and volunteer opportunities, the Cpl. Kyle R. Schneider Foundation offers:


- care packages to service members in combat zones:

 The Foundation works to deliver care packages to our Service Members in combat zones. Through activities like our 5k run, together with generous donations of items, boxes are sent to our service members. The foundation also helps support Syracuse Marine Parents in our care package efforts.  Below is a sample list of items that may sent to deployed servicepeople.

Do you have gently used furniture, household items or clothes to donate for our Military and Veteran Families?

 The Corporal Kyle R. Schneider Foundation operates a local Caring Hands Program. We deliver to or arrange pickup of items for recipients. We also have a liaison and program annex through Fort Drum New York. Since many of our Military may move frequently through deployment or have belongings in storage at distant locales, there is a significant need for these things. Email us to let us know how you wish to help.


-prayer shawl ministries to survivors:

 We are honored to say this is another one of our very meaningful extensions of The Foundation. Volunteers from all over with knitting, crocheting, and quilt making skills give of their time to make prayer shawls and quilts to give to families of the fallen. By doing so volunteers realize a real and tangible sense of caring, comfort, and giving to families suffering that devastating, life altering news. We can say first hand what a meaningful, comforting ministry this is, given by people whom we may or may not know near or far. If you don't have the materials it is not a problem. Our Congregation offers a yarn and quilt patch exchange and donation opportunity. Perhaps your Church or one near you also provides a similar opportunity. 


 -annual scholarships to graduating High School seniors:

Our Foundation seeks donations to support these worthy scholarships through the Baldwinsville Central School District. 

 The Cpl. Kyle R. Schneider Scholarship fund is an annual community scholarship given to a student pursuing a criminal justice degree, or enrolling in a college ROTC/OCS incuring tuition expenses and administered by The Baldwinsville Community Scholarship Fund.





 Please join us at our next volunteer meeting. Please see our monthly calender for dates and times. We welcome volunteers to help with all of our activities.

 The opportunities range from staffers to man the booth at our various activities, like the upcoming Veterans Expo, to people rendering their talents to make prayer shawls. Please contact us and keep checking our upcoming events to see whats happening with The Foundation.



-Corporate Opportunites: 

 Do you represent a company or corporation seeking to make a difference in the community? We can provide you opportunities to supply material and or financial support to The Foundation, which will make a real and tangible difference to our service people and their families. Being a volunteer organization with No Paid Staff Members you can be assured your donations will get to the people who need it. Further, your contributions will be Tax Deductable (501(c)3 application in progress).
