Compassionate Initiative Provides Essential Support for Those Who Served

In a heartwarming display of compassion and community spirit, two dedicated women from Southern Care Hospice led a successful food drive to benefit Veterans’ Outreach, ensuring that local veterans facing hardship received much-needed support. This selfless initiative left an indelible mark on the community and stood as a testament to the dedication of Southern Care Hospice.

Southern Care Hospice recognized the challenges many veterans faced in their local community. Determined to make a difference, they initiated a project to support veterans who had made profound sacrifices for their country.

The response was overwhelming, with an outpouring of support from the community.

The culmination of this heartwarming endeavor came with the delivery of the collected items to Veterans’ Outreach. We were deeply moved by the abundance of support and supplies we received. Shelves were stocked with essentials, and the veterans felt reassured and uplifted by the knowledge that their community stood firmly behind them.

Veterans’ Outreach expressed profound gratitude for the support received, saying, “We are profoundly grateful for the support we received. Thank you so much for making a difference in the lives of those who served their country with honor and courage.”

This remarkable initiative not only provided essential supplies to local veterans in need but also reinforced the bonds of unity and compassion in the community. It served as a poignant reminder that even in challenging times, acts of kindness and generosity could have a profound impact.


An Act of Selflessness.

An Act of Selflessness- Part 2

Remember the girls who raised funds in memory of their brother? Well, their heartfelt mission to make a difference in the lives of veterans continued with an inspiring new chapter. Last Friday, their dedication and the generosity of their supporters came to fruition as they spearheaded a transformative project that captured the attention of the local media.

Their annual fundraising dinner, a heartfelt tribute to their brother Neil Brant, has long been a source of warmth and generosity in Hubbard, consistently raising approximately $3,000 every year. This time, they resolved to focus their efforts on a single veteran in need, magnifying the impact of their generosity.

A few weeks ago, their selflessness guided us to a deserving female veteran facing the challenge of necessary home repairs, with an estimated cost of $600. But the sisters’ commitment was unwavering. They entrusted us with the entire fund, fervently urging us to make a profound difference in the life of one veteran.

Our Services Director, dedicated to the cause, discovered a Vietnam veteran who had endured considerable adversity, battling cancer and various health issues. His most immediate need was a roof repair for his modest ranch, necessitating $2,400 for materials. However, a challenge loomed – finding a roofing company willing to extend a helping hand.

Local media outlets, including WKBN, swiftly caught wind of this extraordinary tale of compassion. The narrative of the two sisters, their hearts kindled by their brother’s memory, resonated far and wide and graced the pages of local newspapers, further amplifying the message of unity, kindness, and the power of community.

In a heartwarming twist of fate, Banner Supply stepped forward to provide the roofing materials, and Cover Pro Construction installed the roofing, embodying the very essence of our community’s generosity. Their dedication showcased the goodness that flourishes when a community unites in a spirit of benevolence.

However, the tale is far from its conclusion. The sisters’ journey of selflessness continues, and the participation of Cover Pro Construction and Banner Supply signifies the endless potential for goodness that arises when we join hands in support. If you feel inspired to contribute to this noble endeavor or wish to take part, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Together, we can perpetuate the transformation of dreams into reality for deserving veterans.

Man’s Best Friend (A Sincere Thanks to Buster’s Brigade)

A couple of weeks ago, we received a crucial call from a church in Stark County, reaching out with an urgent request. They were determined to assist a homeless veteran who had his loyal companion, a bully-breed dog, by his side. The veteran faced a critical need to enter a rehabilitation facility, but a significant hurdle stood in his way – the facility’s strict no-pet policy. Consequently, he adamantly refused to go, torn between seeking help and leaving behind his faithful friend.

In their search for guidance and support, the church contacted us, seeking assistance in this heartwrenching situation. That’s when Buster’s Brigade came to the rescue! Buster’s Brigade, an exceptional rescue organization, has consistently demonstrated their dedication. They provide us with monthly supplies of cat and dog food for veterans in need, and they have even gone the extra mile by covering medical expenses for some of our veterans’ dogs facing various health issues.

Thanks to Donna from Buster’s Brigade, a ray of hope emerged. She was able to secure a rehab facility for the veteran where he wouldn’t be separated from his beloved canine companion. This outcome fills us with immense gratitude, and we will forever be indebted to Buster’s Brigade for their unwavering support.

Here’s part 2 of a story that unfolded on the same day. Bob was assisting another homeless veteran who had arrived with his faithful dog by his side. This veteran, just like the previous one, was facing a challenging situation. We provided him with essential supplies, including food, and arranged for a week-long stay in a hotel to ensure he had a safe and comfortable place to stay. Additionally, we offered him valuable information about future housing options to help him get back on his feet.

Remarkably, during this very moment, Donna from Buster’s Brigade happened to be in our office, generously delivering 100 Daffin candy bars that they had donated to our veterans. Donna’s commitment to our cause knows no bounds. She immediately recognized the urgent need of the homeless veteran’s dog and took swift action. Donna secured a veterinarian appointment for the dog and, incredibly, Buster’s Brigade is covering the entire veterinarian bill. The veteran was visibly moved to tears with relief, understanding that his dog is not just a pet but his only family.

These two stories encapsulate the remarkable support we have received from Buster’s Brigade and the incredible impact it has had on the lives of homeless veterans and their beloved companions.
