STUDENT LAUNCHES DONATION DRIVE FOR VETERANS

Grant Vialardi, founder of Project Honor, speaking with a customer.

John Jay High School junior Grant Vialardi launched a community service project on Memorial Day to help raise money for veterans through a drive to collect old watches and cameras and then fix and sell them.

Partnering with the Lewisboro, New York, Veteran’s Advisory Committee, Vialardi will donate 100% of the proceeds to benefit veterans. One of the goals of this initiative is to create a memorial for service members who had attended John Jay over the years and gave their lives for our country. 

 Named “Project Honor,” Vialardi has initiated this effort to honor his grandfather, a veteran and aerospace engineer, and with whom at an early age he tinkered with objects alongside. 

Several fallen servicemembers who attended the high school have been identified and the plan is to create a memorial possibly on the grounds of the high school to commemorate their sacrifice.
