Yes!! We are in the Clear!! Whooo Hoooo!!!
Formerly Homeless as of 5/30/2013!! Another Whooo Hooo!!
Late last night STA received a very generous Donation of $250 from a repeat donor! This same donor helped STA Prevent Street Homelessness for a family of 8 back in February.
That donation when added to the funds already on hand from other donors of $258 completes the balance we needed to pay the June lot rent!
THANK YOU to ALL who have Donated to help us help this Veteran!
This is Extremely exciting!
We cannot Thank You ALL enough!
Now that we are in the clear on this Veterans lot rent, STA can concentrate on the other miscellaneous repairs and upgrades needed for this Veterans new home and concentrate on letting him heal.
He calls his new home….His “Healing Place”
***These are the things we would like to accomplish now which were planned in our original Goal of raising $3000.00:
1) A new window style Air Conditioner.
2) A nice Used Stove
3) Repair/Secure Shower piping
4) Re-do his decking and build a privacy rail or screen it in.
5) Paint the inside and outside areas
6) Repair gutters
7) Pay his Electricity Bill
8) Obtain Cable TV service for him
9) Purchase some pots and pans etc. (he does not need a lot)
10) Purchase more groceries for him to last him a month or so. (he receives $16 in food stamps)
11) Pay his lot rent for one more month, the month of July. Why? Simply, So he can have some fun. He has been homeless much to much to long and deserves a little break.
He gave his life by serving as a Combat Veteran in the Vietnam War, life as you and i know it today. His service and the service of many others like him is what made it possible for you and i to live the lives we are living right now.
We believe he deserves a little something special….Yes?
Let’s ALL give him the Heroes Welcome he and his Military Brothers should have received in the first place.
DONATE Now to help this Combat Veteran have a forever comfortable home.
