Moore resident made volunteer of the week

(Continued)

MOORE —

Last week I arrived early to encourage as many of those wanting assistance to return next Thursday due to the limited space that we had in the old school. We ended up assisting 65 men and women who were unable to return the following week. Of this number, there were 12 surviving spouses who applied for VA benefits or returned for a follow up visit. Several of these ladies were here to request help with rents, food items and other needs.

There were 16 veterans who filed their first claim for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Several of these men were 70 years of age or more.

For those who need food items, Sid Smith has food boxes prepared each Thursday.

We have three transportation vans that are used to transport veterans to their VA appointments. One of the vans is equipped with a wheelchair lift. Driver Clayton Lee of Dibble can be reached at 684-8860. Other drivers are Howard Martin of Norman, who drives the wheelchair accessible van, and can be reached at 227-3239, Robert Root of Norman can be reached at 919-3008. 

For all of your questions and assistance about veteran’s benefits, we are located at the Goldsby Community Center each Thursday. Doors open at 7 a.m. and sign in sheets are available at 5:30 a.m. Please be there early for us to help you with your claim.

Take time to visit our web address at www.veteranscorner.org. We are a non-profit that helps the veterans and widows in our community. For questions on widow’s benefits, call Shirley at 361-9322. You also may send donations to Veterans Corner, P.O. Box 704, Washington, OK, 73093.

You can call me at 550-8806 or email me at kdgraham@windstream.net.
