Anne's Get back on her feet Fund

A day of fun with the family ends with instant fear and tremendous heartache.  Anne, mother of seven, two of whom are serving our country in the Armed Services, has just lost everything she owns to a house fire.  She had spent the day with her children having fun and shopping for the upcoming school year.  Those new school clothes and supplies lasted all but moments before her house went up in flames.

Anne is no ordinary mother and has shown her character over the past few months when she opened a local restaurant honoring our Service Members.  "The Mess Hall", so named for its military reference, has been a shinning star in the Covington Twsp or Pennsylvania.  Gaining recognition from local Vets and the Disabled American Veteran Department of Pennsylvania, the loyalty and dedication to all Veterans has been the goal of Anne from the beginning.  The restaurant collects donations from patrons for Vets and their families, something that Anne never thought she'd need herself.

With only her children and restaurant, Anne must continue on as any good Soldier would do, and a Soldier she is.  Any contributions gained will go to the the replenishment of necessities and getting the children ready for school.

Thank you to all those that lend a helping hand and God Bless!
