I would like to say thanks to those of you who have supported our benevolence fund. With your help we have been able to help more than 6,000 veterans and surviving spouses with claims service, food items, medical expenses, rents, transportation to medical appointments and the many other types of needs.
Jerry Baxter, treasurer, was able to provide assistance to 10 veterans who needed help with medical expenses, gas cards for transportation and household expenses. Sid Smith provided food and other items to eight families last week. If you need this service, visit with us any Thursday morning at the Goldsby Community Center.
Bring your family by the Goldsby Park to enjoy the Christmas decorations and lights.
Clayton Lee, 684-8860, and other transportation drivers provided rides to seven veterans to the Oklahoma City VA Hospital for their appointments. If you need a ride or know a veteran who does, call Clayton to set up a driver. For the Norman area, call Harold Martin at 227-3239 or Robert Root at 919-3008. For the Moore area, call Howard Robertson at 205-4895.
For all of your questions and assistance about Veterans benefits, we are at the Goldsby Community Center each Thursday. The doors open at 8 a.m. Take time to visit www.veteranscorner.org.
You also may send donations to Veterans Corner, P.O. Box 704, Washington, OK 73093.
