2022 NCP Cares Charity Initiative Assists Two Veterans Organizations

(Syosset, NY, November 11, 2022) –  National Consumer Panel is pleased to announce donations to two organizations that assist veterans as part of our 2022 NCP Cares program.


The organizations were selected based on results of a nationwide survey of NCP’s panel members.


Panel members nominated hundreds of organizations in their areas to receive this one-time donation. Nominations included food pantries for struggling vets, organizations that provide mental health services, groups that help veterans overcome physical limitations, and more.


After reviewing the nominations, NCP narrowed the list to five semi-finalists. We then asked panelists to vote for their top two choices. Voting closed Oct. 24.


2022 NCP Cares recipients:

Patriots & Paws

Patriots & Paws is a California-based nonprofit that provides United States service members with basic home furnishings. The organization has one full-time and one part-time employee and relies on assistance from volunteers. Veterans provide a wishlist and Patriots & Paws works to fulfill those items. The organization also provides referrals to other organizations for veterans interested in an animal companion. Future plans include operating a kennel to provide services to veterans and their animals.


I Honor Your Service to America

The mission of I Honor Your Service to America is to honor, support and encourage men and women in our armed forces worldwide, as well as veterans who have fallen on hard times, with care packages. The organization sends comforts of home like snacks, Beef Jerky, toiletries, knitted items, current magazines, books, music, movies, Girl Scout Cookies, writing materials, coffee, CDs, DVDs, pictures from home, letters, and much more.


National Consumer Panel’s Chief Operating Officer John Toomey says, “On this Veterans Day, I can think of no better organizations for NCP Cares to support than those that bring assistance and dignity to the individuals who protect our nation by serving in our military.”
