SALISBURY — In addition to the nonprofit and human services organizations listed in the Sharing the Season article in Thursday’s edition of the Salisbury Post, these local entities could benefit from community support:

Countersteer Veteran Experience

P.O. Box 354, Salisbury, NC 28145

Purpose: Countersteer is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to our veterans to enrich their lives by providing peer support, community and a safe place for “brothers in arms” to be with one another and find support with the everyday activity and hobby of motorcycling while helping alleviate combat stress and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Many veterans that suffer from the effects of PTSD and combat stress go undiagnosed for years. While actively helping veterans, our programs will also raise awareness of combat stress and PTSD.

Needs: Off-road MX boots in various sizes, but 8-13 in particular. MX helmets as well in sizes M-XL. Monetary donations to support the veterans with travel and accommodations as well as the ability to buy needed items.
