Jerry Baxter, treasurer, assisted veterans with $2,500 from the benevolence fund last week with rent, doctor visits and medical testing and gas cards.
Individuals that need food or other household items can visit with Sid Smith, who brings food boxes each week to the Goldsby Community Center on Thursday mornings. He also can be reached at 573-1990 most any time.
Veterans Corner has two vans, one of which has a wheelchair lift, to transport those 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.
If you would like to be a Veterans Corner sponsor, we are a nonprofit, where your donations should be tax deductible. We help veterans and widows in our community.
