I was watching the news this evening after work and saw a story regarding a local veteran that had been living in a home with no power and tree damage from Hurricane Irma. I was in complete shock. To me, Hurricane Irma seemed like ages ago, it has been over 3 weeks. There has been more tragedy since Irma - Hurricane Maria and the shootings in Las Vegas. I could not imagine how this man still does not have power during all this time. He is a veteran who lives alone in Bartow, FL. I wanted to set-up this gofundme to help him get into his new apartment and hopefully help pay for the damages to his home. Every dollar helps, please donate as this man could greatly use it and in this world that we live in I think we need to start helping anyone we can.
Please donate if you can and share to help this veteran get a safe place to sleep!
