Where to begin? Their utter selflessness in helping the less fortunate, their unwavering enthusiasm, their indefatigable endeavors?
For the past 10+ years, the Robbianis have been exceptionally steadfast in their tremendous efforts helping our local NJ veterans in need. Every Christmas season, they open their home and collect van loads of brand new clothing, toiletries and essentials from the Monmouth County area. As soon as their van is jam packed, they assist hand-delivering the items to both the Lyons and Glen Gardner shelters. In addition to using their beautiful Victorian home as a drop off location, they drive and pick up donations from individuals and companies throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties. They are consistently spreading awareness of the plight of our homeless veterans by reaching out to every possible contact they have. The Robbiani's are the proud owners of Robbiani’s Clocks and Dolls, Marlboro, NJ, so they use their thriving business to advocate assistance for our struggling NJ veterans.
They give of their time without drawing any attention to themselves, not seeking any praise and they always does everything with such joy, love and unparalleled kindness and generosity of their hearts. For pausing their personal lives to help our veterans, they are more than worthy of this recognition.

“We feel very honored to be able to help our great veterans in any way. All of our veterans have sacrificed so much, it is rewarding to give back. Stacia McDonough is a devoted leader. We have known her from the beginning of her journey helping the homeless veterans, and are so proud of her and her achievements. John would be proud of her too,” says Mike and Kathleen Robbiani.
For ALWAYS going the extra mile in helping our veterans, for being a shining light of hope for them, we salute you Mike and Kathleen! You are a blessing to our veterans.
