Urgent Appeal for Generous Support to Restore Our Women Veterans Home

We regret to inform you that our recently renovated veterans home for women has been burglarized, resulting in the theft of several invaluable items. The perpetrators have taken off with essential plumbing, the furnace, ductwork, and many other pieces of vital equipment. This unfortunate incident has created a significant setback for us, as we endeavor to offer our women veterans a comfortable and safe environment in which to reside.

We understand the gravity of the situation and humbly request your help. We are accepting tax-deductible donations, and your contribution will go a long way in restoring our veteran’s home and ensuring that our women veterans receive the care and support they deserve.

Thank you for your consideration and support in this matter.
