Today was a special day ... We had the pleasure of assisting a WWII veteran. He was 94 and still going strong ... a little fragile but keeps going. He had a good memory and shared a bit with us. He did shed a few tears but he said he had never felt comfortable sharing anything before. But with us he did and he felt great when he left. It's great to not only provide  warm clothing to those in need but to also provide the type of environment that makes veterans comfortable enough to share what they need to share is a plus. We hope that with continued support from others we can keep our establishment open. Veterans are countless, the issues are numerous, and our government falls short in what it provides to our veterans. 
Thanks to all those who support us through donations.

This past Friday we were lucky enough to meet and provide service to Earl W. Bell ... He is a World War II veteran who served from 1943 to 1945 in China and Burma. Earl is 96 years old and still on the move. His daughter brought him to us and told us he exercises every day in her barn by walking laps and marking each lap with a stick to help him keep count. We are honored to have met him.
Earl is pictured below shaking hands with volunteer Carl Merrill.
