Another Great Example

helping-hand

Arizona VFW Charities working with a Veterans’ Agency in Maricopa County and a VFW Service Officer in Pinal County were able to pull their efforts together and with proper follow through were able to assist another veteran and his family in Pinal County to stay in their home.  This is just another great example of how Arizona VFW Charities can cross county lines, agency lines and work together getting the assistance needed for our veterans here in Arizona.

Arizona VFW Charities helps homeless vet with home

Charities House3Charities House4

Veterans Day 2012 turned out to be a day that desert Storm veteran Rodney Nix will always remember. It marked his settling into a mobile home in a nice park on the Apache Trail in Apache Junction, Az.  This mobile home fully furnished and landscaped was donated to Arizona VFW Charities by Norma and Gary Tomlinson, targeting a homeless vet if at all possible.   Through the efforts of Az. VFW Charities and VFW Post 7968 out of Apache Junction homeless veterans committee chairman Frank Page a vet that fit was found.  Mr. Nix, a U.S. Navy and Air Force Veteran had been homeless for quite awhile.  Sleeping and living accommodations being very shaky living out of a hangar and elsewhere.  His situation came to our attention through another agency and Mr. Page starting the engineered the logistics to make it all work smoothly for Mr. Nix. “It all just jelled” said Mr. Page.  Page related that the Tomlinson’s, members of a VFW Post, came to him offering to donate their mobile home saying they wanted it to go to a homeless vet, if possible.   Informing them there is now a non-for-profit foundation, “Az. VFW Charities” within the state VFW that can accept such donations, allowing donors a tax deduction. “This is a prime example of our motto”, “VETS HELPING VETS” emphasized Page.    (pictured above)    The key to his new home is presented to veteran Rodney Nix (second from right) by Norma and Gary Tomlinson as VFW Post and Charities representative Frank Page looks on.  This home was fully furnished and landscaped  and ready to move into.
