The national home meets the changing needs of military and veterans’ families. The home is located in Eaton Rapids, Mich.
“Through the helpline and on campus programs, help is there for families and children going through a crisis on our beautiful campus and in their own communities across our nation,” a spokesman said.
“The VFW and the National Home are commited to honoring veterans and active-duty military personal by providing help and hope for their children and families,” noted Anna McKeehan, local veterans and family support chair for the Ladies Auxiliary 2598.
She said help begins when a veteran, active-duty military or family member calls the helpline-1-800-313-4200. The call will be answered by the caring staff. The staff is there to help find solutions to pressing issues and concerns. Doors are opened to new possibilities.
The Department of Tennessee Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliaries have a home on 600+ acres of land.
“We are responsible for the upkeep of this beautiful home. Over the last several years, we have been doing a major remodel of the Tennessee Cottage,” she explained. “This home was built in the 1960s and has not been updated until a few years ago. For the last year, we have been raising funds to replace all the windows in the home.’
She noted a donation by Cleveland Plywood Co. helped them accomplish the goal.
Pam Catlett with Cleveland Plywood is the VFW Ladies Auxiliary president of the James D. Blankenship Post 2598 in Cleveland.
She contacted the CEO to see if he could assist on getting the windows.
The Steve Robinson, CEO, agreed to let the auxiliary have the windows at cost. He saved the organization more than $3,500. His company gave up all profits for the windows.
