What is He doing? He is “Taking Back His Life”
Since August 24th, 2012 STA has been assisting in one way or another, a 66 year old U.S. Army Combat Veteran of the Vietnam War.
He has been homeless for a very very long time. Much too long.
It has been a very difficult long road since August 24th, 2012.
We are almost in the Clear but not quite.
Ok, i admit it, i am panicking a bit, but trying to rely on Jesus to come through and move you to Donate to this Veterans needs.
We are short by $250.00 to pay the first month of his lot rent for this month of June. We need to come up with the funds by tomorrow, Thursday 6/13/2013.
To make a very long story short….on this 5/30/2013 STA got him into a place of his own in a very quiet and peaceful, 55+ mobile home park here in Clearwater, FL. In a small 55+ community where the park manager is simply awesome!
You can read more HERE and in other blogs i have written here on the website. There are numerous ones.
With the help of some priceless friends of STA, we have been raising funds here to help this veteran settle into his new home and do required repairs, make needed purchases for his home and safety, furnish his home and provide him some groceries.
STA has done a great deal of work already, but we are not through.
We have a Total Goal of: $3000
We have raised: $685.00 of that goal from generous donors from across the country and into the UK. In addition to that $685 raised, my wife and i put in $175 of our personal funds.
***The goal is to prevent this U.S. Army Combat Veteran from accepting funds from a different source which if he did, would disqualify him from future very valuable VASH benefits he is entitled to as a Veteran.
In addition, we wanted to cover the several repairs needed of which we have already done the first major one, being a new water heater and install. We also plan on covering the first two months of his lot rent so he could relax a bit and concentrate on living, learning how to have a life and build a life.
With Donations, We plan on painting the inside of his home, re-doing his deck outside and building a privacy rail or screened in porch. Painting his new concrete stairs a neighbor of ours brought to him yesterday. Thank you Keith! Painting the brick garden area outside and repairing his gutters.
We have picked up and brought him a really nice refrigerator donated by my wifes work, Concurrent Technologies Corporation of Largo, FL.
We would like to purchase also a used stove for him.
We need more funds, more donations to do all this work and more. We know he will need more groceries.
***UPDATE: As of late last night, 6-12-2013 we received a generous donation of $250 from a kind soul who has donated to STA before. We cannot Thank him enough. We are now In The Clear! Now we can concentrate on other repairs and upgrades as possible but are no longer in panic mode.
THANK YOU to ALL who have been Donating to this need!!
Most important though is the $250 we are short on to cover his lot rent of $508 for this month of June, the first month he is in his new home. We already have $258 sitting in the bank from generous donors, waiting for the $250 needed to pay the rest of the lot rent.
Will You please help us complete the rent with a donation Now?
100% of the donations are going to this need. Not even a dime of the donations have gone to gasoline on this need. And believe me the driving we have done is extensive for this need.
Please! Make a Donation Now!
$10 – $25 – $100 or the whole $250 please! Yep, we are desperate.
Our deadline is tomorrow on this Veterans Lot rent. He takes over next month.
The Donate button is a specific dedicated button to this Veterans Need.
