Online PR News – 15-October-2019 – New York, NY – This Nov. 11, 5th Ave. will fill with red, white, and blue as America gathers to honor our military veterans in the New York City Veterans Day Parade. The annual parade is produced by the United War Veterans Council (UWVC) and this year commemorates the centennial of the first NYC Vets parade (formerly the Armistice Day Parade) back in 1919, when our troops were returning home from The Great War. (WW1)

C. Forbes has partnered with the UWVC to provide and manage this year's official parade merchandise shop online. The web store features exclusive apparel and collectibles with the 2019 parade centennial design. A portion of the proceeds go to help fund the UWVC's mission of honoring our vets in need with health, wellness, and educational programs. Shop today at www.UWVC.shop.

To help raise awareness of the important work the UWVC does year round for our vets, C. Forbes will be donating a pair of socks to veterans in need for every pair sold through the end of November, one for one. It's called #SocksForVets. These socks are quality, super soft and comfortable and good for casual wear or dress. They feature a bold red, white and blue design and the UWVC Veterans Day Parade Centennial logo woven into each side. Join the movement and ROCK THE SOCKS to show your support for our war veterans and the work the UWVC is doing to serve our nation's heroes in times of need.

Purchase socks at the official parade online shop, snap an interesting photo and share it tagging #SocksForVets. You might get featured on parade day coverage on WABC-TV Ch. 7. "Our goal is to see everybody wearing these on parade day and beyond…" says C. Forbes, Inc. company president Chip Forbes. "That'll mean a lot of great socks will be given to veterans who find themselves in the care of organizations like the VA and the UWVC. Yeah, it's just socks, but it's really a gesture of comfort and support that'll come from thousands of individuals who want to show they care about veterans."
