Thank you for your service, Johnny

A Hand Up continues to make strides for our Veterans.  We often will meet with a Veteran to let him/her select their items before their actual delivery is scheduled.  This past Monday started of as one of these reservations for furniture from our Veteran friends in the Veteran Administration Supportive Housing program.  Michael Fishman met Marc Neves from VASH and his client Johnny, a Veteran who wanted to reserve some furniture for the following week’s delivery for Vets.  Johnny had just received his apartment and was anxious to furnish it, so he could finally live in his own place.  So, to hurry up the process, he called his brother-in-law, who came with a pick-up truck.  Between Marco’s minivan and the pick-up, Johnny had enough helping hands to load a bed complete with frame, 2 sofas, a recliner, a dresser, a night stand, 3 lamps, a kitchen table with 4 chairs, dishes with glasses and silverware, all sorts of cooking items (for apple pie apparently) linens (but no pillows – we are out), a toaster, coffee pot, waste basket and the much needed air conditioner.  Johnny was so excited to start a new life!  Thank you for your service, Johnny and enjoy your new home!
