LOCKPORT, N.Y. -- Spire Recovery Solutions, founded by U.S. Military Veterans Jacob Torriere and Joseph Torriere, is proud to serve both its local and national communities. Over the first half of 2024, Spire has donated to four unique organizations dedicated to improving the lives of children, service members, veterans, and more. 

In January, Spire donated to Semper K9 Assistance Dogs, an organization that shelters and trains service dogs at no cost for disabled service members. In February, Spire donated to the United Service Organization (USO), a dedicated support system for the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. In April, Spire reached out to its local community by supporting and sponsoring a local youth soccer team, the Niagara Pal Soccer Club. And finally, in May, Spire donated to the Fisher House Foundation, an organization where military and veteran families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital. 

Semper K9 Assistance Dogs

Semper K9 Assistance Dogs rescues dogs and trains them to become service animals for wounded veterans, providing essential support and companionship. Semper K9 currently has over 125 volunteers that work tirelessly to ensure disabled veterans have access to well-trained and supportive service animals. In a recent move to expand their assistance to veterans, Semper K9 has also purchased 33 acres of land adjacent to Marine Corps Base where they plan to build a retreat-style facility for out-of-area veterans and their families to come and train with their service dogs.

By contributing to Semper K9, Spire Recovery Solutions helps ensure that veterans receive the specialized assistance they need to navigate daily challenges, enhancing their quality of life and fostering greater independence.


The USO provides a wide range of programs and services to active-duty military personnel and their families, from entertainment tours to transition programs. Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.

USO operates at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy. With 250 locations across the globe and over 20,000 annual volunteers, the USO is one of the largest community-led organizations in the world. 

Niagara Pal Soccer Club

Locally, Spire Recovery Solutions is making a direct impact by sponsoring the Niagara Pal Soccer Club. This youth soccer organization offers children and teenagers the opportunity to engage in sports, develop their skills, and learn valuable life lessons through teamwork and discipline. 

This donation reflects the Spire leadership team’s desire to not only support the local community but its members. The Niagara Pal Soccer Club is home to several of the Spire team’s children and plays an important role in the community for those looking to stay active, involved, and supportive. 

Fisher House Foundation

Further extending its support to military families, Spire Recovery Solutions has donated to the Fisher House Foundation. Fisher House provides free, temporary lodging for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. This service alleviates the financial burden and stress of finding accommodations during medical emergencies, allowing families to be close to their loved ones during critical times.
