Serving Those Who Have Served

Each month, JAM Properties likes to pause and take time to recognize an organization within our community that is currently bettering the lives of others.  As a real estate solution and redevelopment company, we believe in dedicating some of our time, money, and energy towards helping others and serving the community as a whole.  We also like to feature on our blog those who make giving back their full-time mission.

This month’s organization is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization with their warehouse located in Anaheim, CA.  The JAM Properties team was graciously invited to tour their facility and see first-hand what they do.  (Be sure to stay tuned for a future Blog Post with a video of our tour!)  Without further ado, it is our pleasure to introduce to you: Patriots and Paws.

Patriots and Paws

Patriots and Paws is a unique organization that was funded from the Founder’s family inheritance.[1]  “Her father was a Master Sgt. in the United States Marine Corps and served in Korea and WWII.  In the 50’s her father built basic home furniture out of fruit crates for himself and his wife.”  The need of basic home furnishings for veterans was great back then and still is today.  That’s what inspired Penny Lambright to create Patriots and Paws and provide for those in need.

Patriots and Paws mission is to provide Veterans/Active Military/Reservists and their families throughout Southern California with basic home furnishings for newly acquired residences.  Additionally, for those Veteran/Military service folks interested, they can be matched up with a rescued companionship animal.  Patriots and Paws also provides free resources to support and guide them as they transition into civilian life.  All of this FREE of charge.”[2]       

Please take a few moments to hear from the Founder, in her own words, about the story of Patriots and Paws.
“It’s not about Patriots and Paws.  It’s about taking care of our veterans.”
-Penny Lambright

We experienced that first-hand when we visited the Patriots and Paws warehouse and met the people who keep this organization running.  They are a hard-working, volunteer organization that is committed to serving each and every veteran that needs their help.  Learn more about their mission by visiting their website:

Patriots and Paws provides Veterans/Active Military/Reservists and their families throughout Southern California with basic home furnishings for newly acquired residences.  If you are interested in learning more about how they can potentially help you or someone you know, please visit their website ( and reach out to the organization directly.

Additionally, there are many ways to get involved with and give to Patriots and Paws.  Do you have some gently-used furniture or household goods to get rid of?  Why not donate the items to the warehouse?  Do you have a little extra time on your hands?  Patriots and Paws is looking for volunteers with all different types of talents.  Head to their website by clicking here.

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to tour the Patriots and Paws warehouse and personally see the commitment and passion they have to serve those who have served our country.  We took a video recording of our tour and conversation with the Founder and will be sharing that soon.  It was a great occasion, and we are inspired by their dedication and consideration for others.

Stay tuned to see our tour of the Patriots and Paws warehouse!  Coming to our Blog soon…
