An experienced engineer, Avi Polischuk currently serves as chief executive officer and owner of R&S United Services in Amityville, New York. As the senior mechanical engineer at the firm, Avi Polischuk provides engineering solutions to renowned developers in the New York region. Outside of his profession work, Mr. Polischuk donates to several charitable organizations, such as the Wounded Warriors Project.

The Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) provides physical and mental support services to military veterans and service members wounded on or after September 11, 2001, the date of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. A tax-exempt 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, the WWP has provided services to over 100,000 individuals and their families.

The services provided by WWP include programs focused on physical health, economic empowerment, engagement and support, and mental health. Project Odyssey is an example of a mental health program at the organization. The initiative seeks to address combat stress by connecting participants with nature, via outdoor retreats that include activities such as horseback riding and canoeing. In addition to the retreats, participants can connect with peers and receive ongoing support from an extensive WWP network. For more information on the WWP, visit www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
