Veterans Corner Article #23

The Port Huron Elks Lodge 343 and Elks National Veterans Service Commission Volunteers recently started a “Veteran Ride Share” program to assist our local Veterans with transportation issues while getting them to and from their scheduled appointments to the local VA-Veterans Clinic at the Yale Community Health Center of McLaren-Port Huron.  To date, our volunteers have already assisted (4) Veterans in making it to their appointments. The Veterans have provided early enough notice, so we have time to schedule a driver to assist them.  It’s a great way to meet and enjoy the company and stories of our nation true hero’s, our Veterans.  Please consider becoming a Ride Share volunteer.  On another note, Lodge 343 Veterans Committee are always looking for donated medical, mobility and bathroom safety equipment for Veterans with disabilities.  Equipment needs include manual wheelchairs, motorized wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, adaptive bikes, shower seats, lavatory seats, step stools, basically anything to assist our disabled Veterans live their daily life.  If you, or a family member, know of anyone who no longer has the need for this type of equipment and are looking for a group to donate these items to, please consider the Port Huron Elks Lodge 343 Veterans Committee, thank you!  If any Lodge 343 member has an interest in assisting with the Veteran Ride Share program to have your name added to the list of Volunteers, or can donate equipment items for our Veterans, please contact Scott R. Harris, ENVSC State Rep at (810) 956-7374.
