We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, with all of your donations being tax deductible. We accept handicapped items, cars, trucks and other types of items that can be given to those veterans in need or sold to raise funds for the benevolence.
Most of you know that we are actively looking for a location to build a facility that we can call home for Veterans Corner. I envision a place where we can do more for our men and women who have served our nation as military members. If you have any ideas that would help us make it happen, please contact John Carter at 202-1999.
If you need food or other household items, Sid Smith brings food boxes each week to the Goldsby Community Center on Thursday mornings. He also can be reached at 573-1990.
Veterans Corner has two vans, one of which has a wheelchair lift, to transport veterans to their VA medical appointments. We also have two drivers who use their personal cars to transport veterans to VA appointments.
If you need a ride or know a veteran who does, call Clayton Lee, 684-8860, 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 7 a.m. and sign-in sheets are available at 5:30 a.m. You may also send donations to Veterans Corner, P.O. Box 704, Washington, OK 73093.
You can call me at 550-8806 or email kdgraham@
