GreenLight A Donation To A Veteran


America’s veterans are some of our nation’s bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it’s hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform, they’re more camouflaged than ever. Greenlight A Vet, sponsored by Walmart, is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green.


Change One Light to Green

Change one light to green in a visible location on your porch, in your home, or at your office and keep it glowing every day as a symbol of appreciation and support for our veterans. Then, share your support by taking a picture of your green light and posting it using the hashtag #greenlightavet.

Why Green?

Green is the color of hope renewal and well-being. “Greenlight” is also a term commonly used to activate forward movement. The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding the recognition of veterans, and “greenlight” them forward as valued members of our communities.

How can you help?  Where can you get a green light?


Our Community Cares is selling green light bulbs for a minimum $10 donation to our organization.  Your minimum $10 donation will be used to support a vet or veterans program right here in Columbia County.  None of your donation will leave Columbia County.  

Light bulbs can be purchased by contacting a Our Community Cares Director.  (contact us on our OCC Facebook or by calling 518-336-5254)

Thank you for supporting our Veterans and Our Community Cares!
