Terry Allen Sumpter - Care Fund

This is my friend Terry Allen Sumpter. Terry is a veteran and a native of Oklahoma. Terry is partially disabled. He lost the lower half of his right leg and is mostly confined to a wheel chair. He can walk for short periods and distances with the use of a walker. If you have seen Terry around town, you already know that he is a good person, with a kind heart. That being said, Terry has fallen on hard times and needs our help. Terry is currently without a home or work. Terry is a Christian and a patriot. He is proud and it hurts him to have to ask for assistance and/or money. Terry wants to earn his way, and I plan to help him do just that. He gets a very small amount of Social Security every Month, but it’s not nearly enough to provide a place to live and buy food. I’m in the process of helping him get a local bank account for his Social Security and helping set him up on monthly food assistance. I am working with a local group that helps veterans secure housing and helps them pay rent/bills for a period of time. That being said, I am starting a GoFundMe for Terry. I’d like to help him get a used van with a chair lift and basic necessities that everyone needs, clothes, shoes, etc. Natalie and I have work that Terry can do for us at our business and earn extra money to help bridge the gap that is left after he gets his social security. I can assure you that working and paying his own way is what Terry prefers, he just needs our help as a community to allow him to be able to do that again. Terry doesn’t know that I am setting up a GoFundMe and likely wouldn’t want me to. He is the type of guy that would accept your kindness, but would never ask for it. If you can help Terry at all, I ask you to please help. I want to see this good man re-enter society and be able to have a normal life, like so many of us take for granted (including me). I will post the GoFundMe link here. I can assure you that Terry will get EVERY cent that is put into this account and I will do everything that I can to help him get back on his feet. I was asked earlier by a friend, why do you want to help this man, my response was what it always is... “what if that was me?” If a few things throughout my life had went slightly another way, that could just as easily be me. I would hope and pray that someone someone would help me. It is getting very cold and miserable outside, please do something if you can. Thank you all in advance and GOD bless you all.
