As Legionnaires, we pledge ourselved to mutual helpfulness. This blog is dedicated to that pledge. I am writing to ask for assistance. We have little time to organize a ride or other benefit, we need your help. I am sure that many of you know of veterans who are in hard times.
Before there was H2H, Post 295 had Operation Provide Comfort, http://www.post295.org/OPC.htm since 2003 we have helped many wounded warriors and veterans in need. With our funds low, we cannot provide assitance to a couple in need. They have both served honorably, he is still National Guard, and they have a 2 year old girl. For the 2nd time in 8 months thier transmission needs to be repaired. The shop Glen Burnie Transmission has already done the work and is charging $3500 for the job. It seems overpriced to me, but they had just put a "new" one less than 8 months ago. All that we can be done is to pay it now and sue latter.
National's Temporary Financial Assistance Program cannot pay for vehicle repairs, so I am asking anyone who is able to to make a charitable donation to American Legion Post 295's Operation Provide Comfort to get them back on the road. Because you know, No Car, No Work, No Pay = on the street. Visit http://www.post295.org/OPC.htm and Donate $5, $10, etc..
So far we have been able to raise $1000 toward the $3500 bill. Any contributions are appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
