Help for heroes

Las Vegas, NV

Each year, Paradise Post 149 partners with Walker Furniture to select 10 veterans in need of furniture. It can be a specialty need, such as a lift chair or hospital bed, or simply a new kitchen table and chairs. Our job is to look over the requests that come in, and nominate the most deserving by vetting them to ensure they are veterans and visit their homes to verify the need. Most often, Walker goes above and beyond to ensure that our fellow vets aren't sleeping or sitting on the floor, which we often find. On top of that, our post pays for each recipient's first year's dues and asks them to become part of the committee for the next year's effort.
