Case of the Week 7-11-22

Pull Resources Together for Suffering Veteran

A veteran came to our office for help with a problem that he couldn’t face alone.  After we took care of him, he was so grateful he wanted to give back.  He wanted to donate a hospital bed.  We were unable to take it because we are crunched for space, but we told him we’d keep his information.  

Two weeks later, a veterans’ caseworker called, said she was frantically searching for a hospital bed for a veteran that was in stage 4 cancer.   We were able to coordinate with the donor, the family of the veteran in need, and other agencies to get the hospital bed delivered. The family members assembled it, and as a bonus, we provided the veteran’s wife with a walker.

This is the kind of work we do every day, and we are grateful to be able to do it.
