He fought for us. Now let's fight for him.

From the Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2889:

We have all seen the news article about the 84 year old veteran who was evicted and is suspected of being an elderly abuse victim...
Many of you all have asked how you can help. My phone has been ringing off of the hook! Here is the answer...
After speaking with the various entities associated with this gentleman, I know that he is in need of temporary housing. There are multiple options (fully furnished) around Rock Hill and Fort Mill. The amount we are able to raise will determine which location he will live at.
Please note that the fully furnished option will allow us to not have to take in stock piles of furniture/odds and ends, until we have a permanent location.

I know that all the local Veterans Organizations have been following this case and are ready to help out as well. Feel free to donate here!

We will also take any donations in person at the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2889. 732 West Main St. Rock Hill SC 29730.

I love it when the community comes together for such a righteous cause! SCProud!

Thank you to everyone who has made this possible!! I have just requested the money withdrawn from this account. This fund has provided $3,162 towards his housing! AMAZING! To add to that, there has been $1,830 collected at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2889!! This veteran will be provided with $5,000 worth of living expenses thanks to all of the individuals in the community and the various Veterans Organizations who have contributed!!

I cannot say thank you enough for helping this veteran after everyone else had failed him!
