In addition, elementary school students from Chenango Forks Central School District, Broome County Catholic Schools and Union-Endicott Central School District contributed an additional 500 letters to the effort. 

On November 12, the Nam Knights of America Motorcycle Club hand-delivered approximately 1,000 letters to the home, an endeavor that began in 2020. The Nam Knights of America Motorcycle Club is a charitable organization that supports veterans and law enforcement.
