2019 Veterans Wish Program

Thanks to generous donors, we were able to grant 175 wishes over the past year to senior citizens who have proudly served our country.  Our goal in 2019 is to surpass that number and grant wishes to as many elderly veterans as we can before it is too late. We need your help to make this happen.  Donate today to help us honor their service!

Christopher A., 66, Rich Creek, VA

Christopher Auton, 66, a resident of Heritage Hall nursing facility in Rich Creek, Virginia, had his wish to visit Dollywood in the fall and see the changing leaves granted, thanks to many generous donors.  Chris has cerebral palsy and is a quadriplegic.  He is a permanent resident of Heritage Hall and, sadly, has no family that visits him. Despite all he has been through, Chris is very sweet and brings much joy to all who know him. Because of the life he has lived, he has never been able to experience many of the things that others have. His wish to travel to Pigeon Forge and visit Dollywood was granted thanks to the generosity of many donors. Because of his medical condition, he was accompanied by both a nurse and a CNA. Chris loved everything about his trip, but his favorite part was the Dollywood Stampede!

O’Rita T., 71, Philadelphia, PA

O’Rita is deeply religious and watches Jimmy Swaggert everyday.  She loves his preaching and her greatest wish would be to attend one of his annual meetings.  In the past, she has been on mission trips, managed Bible Study and became a minister herself.  She also cared for her elderly aunts when they were ill.  She would like to travel with her sister to Baton Rouge for this special meeting.  We need to raise $1,600 to cover the cost of travel and accommodations for them.  Please donate today!

Alan “Lee” Peluso, 62, a resident of Haven Convalescent Home in New Castle, Pennsylvania, had his wish to ride in the sidecar of a Harley Davidson motorcycle granted, thanks toThunder Harley Davidson of Sharon, Pennsylvania. Peluso has multiple sclerosis and lost much of his functional capabilities at a young age. He always wanted to ride a Harley motorcycle, but the disease prevented him from doing that.

His wish was granted on Wednesday, October 10th when he experienced the ride of his life in a sidecar courtesy of Thunder Harley Davidson.

Nursing Home Resident Gets His Wish Granted

New Castle News  Nursing Home Resident Gets His Wish Granted” October 11, 2018

Delaware Valley Veterans Home, Philadelphia, Pa

Help us brighten the holidays for local elderly veterans at the Delaware Valley Veterans Home in Philadelphia. These men are in need of new personal electric razors with a storage case. Although they do get some electric razors donated, they are often cheap and break easily. They sometimes shave them with regular disposable razors, but the men have thin skin and get cut easily.  Each of the 130 residents would love their own razor as it is not sanitary to share them. Our goal is to raise $50 per razor and to present these gift to the men during a holiday celebration. Your donation of $50 will provide a much-needed item to a deserving veteran and will show them that we remember and thank them for their service.
