Today we bring you a “Case of the Week” from our Liberty Ohio office. A Navy veteran was referred to our office by another agency. A young lady, his girlfriend had dropped him off at our door. This veteran had been to many places seeking help, but none had been able to help him.
He had lost a lot of weight and didn’t have proper clothing for his workplace. He had recently secured employment that required casual dress. Bob Julian, our Services Director, asked one of our volunteers to help the veteran look through our “Hero’s Closet” clothing pantry. They found him several pairs of pants, shirts, and even some nice coats. We also gave him the large tote of groceries through our “Serve Veterans Now Food Pantry” (provided by a grant from WalMart Foundation) that would keep him in food for at least a couple of weeks.
In addition to all of that, we gave him a gift card for Walmart to purchase under clothes and a gas card to help get him around town. When his girlfriend returned, she asked him how it went. His response was “This is a 5 star place”.
