Update for Repairs for Heroes

This great veteran is Virgil Cooley and his wife Deanna. Virgil is going through several medical issues and cannot walk. His wife Deanna is trying to take care of him. Their bathroom floor is falling in, and the shower is very tiny and impossible for Deanna to take care of Virgil in it.  Also, they need their bedroom door to be widen for wheelchair access.

Please donate here to help Mr. & Mrs Cooley here. 


   We hope to have this project completed before Christmas but we can’t do it without your financial support.
