I wish to extend my heartfelt thank you for all who donated to our Help 4 Heroes fund. It is a huge understatement to say we are overwhelmed with the generosity generated from our community with the matching grant (times five) from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
Brian Byers and WSOY stepped up to assist us in providing the daily necessities for our Macon County Veterans. We also thank Howard Buffett, Lindsay Romano, Jeff Daly, Debbie Bogle, Chad Woollen, Kevin Breheny, Tom Schneider, Dave Freyling, Rainstorm Car Wash and Texas Roadhouse.
The Veteran’s Assistance Commission is excited to start 2018 knowing it can provide bus passes, emergency meal cards, warm clothing, school books and so much more for our Veterans. In one year, our fund has touched the lives of nearly 400 Macon County Veterans including providing nearly 5,000 bus rides. Kathie Powless, Greg Collins and Anthony Taylor have daily contact with our Veterans and enjoy the ability to provide needed assistance. If you, your business/school or organization would like to “adopt” a Veteran for the Christmas Season or donate to the fund email Help4heroesmc@yahoo.com
Thank you on behalf of our Veterans in need.
Ayn Owens, Decatur, Help 4 Heroes
