ACOUSTIK ATTAK AND VETERAN’S TIME TO THRIVE (VT3) PARTNER TO COMBAT VETERAN SUICIDE AND HOMELESS PROBLEM
ACOUSTIK ATTAK, a musical accessory company is partnering with VT3 by donating a portion of their sales for the creation of a first ever 18-unit housing development designed specifically to create a familiar environment focused solely on serving and empowering veterans and their families.
The complex, which will be built in Amsterdam, New York to serve Montgomery, Fulton, and Saratoga Counties, will provide our veterans with the ability to support themselves and each other in a way that neither the civilian population, nor the Veteran’s Administration has been able to do.
There is a dire need to disrupt the cycle of suicides, divorces, addictions, homelessness, and other post military service problems.
VT3’s project will establish a safe and purposive environment for a community that understands each other’s experiences and needs. This familiarity and understanding will translate into a community that enables each other to thrive, not just survive, and achieve a quality of life better than if left on their own to reintegrate into the civilian society.
Acoustik Attak produces innovative, patented guitar picks with raised ridges or structures. The results are enhanced sound waves derived from multiple strikes created with just one strum on a guitar or bass.
CEO Michael DePietro, whose family and friends consist of many veterans, is excited about partnering with VT3 because VT3’s objective is close to home and right in line with Acoustik Attak’s mission.
CEO Micheal DePietro said “As soon as David contacted me about VT3’s project, I knew we had to be involved. What they are creating will be an inspiration to not only veterans everywhere, but to our entire country. There aren’t enough resources available out there to help all of our military families who are in so much need. Every little bit counts.”
David Mendez, President of VT3 said, “We’re excited to be working with Acoustik Attak. Their generosity will help make our vision come true. Just like the military men and women we honor this weekend, today’s veterans are also willing to give what President Lincoln called ‘the last full measure of devotion’ so that we could be free and enjoy the American dream. With Michael DePietro and Acoustik Attak’s support, VT3 will be able to construct a housing development that will give Veterans access to those same freedoms and dreams.
To kick off the partnership, Acoustik Attak is pledging one dollar from every pack sold during their Memorial Day Sale to be donated to VT3.
Acoustik Attak will then allot one of the two new models, Stealth XL or Juggernaut, to VT3 and donate one dollar from every pack of the model sold until April 2023.
