Drop off returnable bottles and cans; we’ll sort them at the Tran Redemption Corp (Big Y’s parking lot), 161 East Main Street, Milford, MA 01757. All monies raised will be used to support our mission of providing resources and support to our military members, veterans and their families.


Recent Recognition

Thanks To Yanks was recognized for their help in assisting the Junior Girl Scouts of Milford to learn about military and veteran family needs. Over the past year, the girls joined Thanks To Yanks in providing items for homeless veterans, retiring flags, making and distributing hundreds of Stars for Our Troops, and putting together care packages for our troops, among many other things. Thanks To Yanks is committed to promoting civilian respect and understanding of our military, veterans and their families.


Registration is now open for the 11th Annual Thanks To Yanks 9/11 Tribute Dinner. The dinner is FREE to all military members, veterans, their families and emergency response personnel; it is simply our way to recognize and thank them for the sacrifices they make in order to ensure our freedoms and safety. The first dinner hosted 120 guests and has continued to grow each year with 450 guests in 2016.

We hope you consider a financial contribution for the 2017 9/11 Tribute Dinner to help make this event possible for those that have sacrificed so much for us. We look forward to your financial assistance for the 9/11 Tribute Dinner, so we can once again honor those that serve and protect us.
