The benevolence fund was used last week to assist several veterans and surviving spouses with household expenses, medical expense, transportation and food items. We continue to except donations of cars, trucks and handicapped items that can be given or sold to fund our programs. When a donation is made we will give you a receipt that you fill in the market value of the donated item. Jerry Baxter is in charge of the benevolence fund and can be reached at 833-0773.
Sid Smith has prepared food boxes that also are available each Thursday morning. Sid can be reached at 573-1990.
Clayton Lee, 684-8860, and our other transportation drivers provide rides to veterans to the Oklahoma City VA Hospital for their appointments. If you need a ride or know a veteran who does, contact Clayton to set up a driver. For the Norman area veterans can call Harold Martin at 227-3239 or Robert Root at 919-3008. For the Moore area, call Howard Robertson, 205-4895.
For all of your questions and assistance about veteran’s benefits we are located at the Goldsby Community Center each Thursday. Doors open at 7 a.m. and sign in sheets are available at 5:30 a.m.
