The spirit of Christmas was alive and well in Hagerstown, Md., on Saturday December 19, 2020 when a few dozen volunteers and companies like; Labors Office Furniture out of Hagerstown MD, Alpha Pro Flooring, Coca-Cola out of Hagerstown MD, Troop 58 out of Boonsboro MD, Lowe’s in Waynesboro PA and in Hagerstown MD, American Metal Roofing out of Mansfield Ohio, pitched in to help a local Navy veteran.
Thanks to the efforts of the Battle Buddy Response Team (BBRT) to organize the event, the veteran has new and improved living conditions including new flooring and decking. An electrical upgrade and new hot water heater were completed at an earlier time.
To top off the very successful weekend, BBRT raised money to purchase the veteran a new stove on December 20, 2020.
This is just one of many stories that shows the need that exists among veterans—and the quick response of the Battle Buddy Response Team. They do not have red tape to work through. As soon they receive a call for help, they jump into action and do whatever it takes to help.
BBRT is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing suicides among veterans and their families. Team Members are ready to deploy 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year across the United States to perform welfare checks when a concerned party reaches out.
Statistics show that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide every day, a staggering number that demonstrates the need for organizations like the Battle Buddy Response Team. The 501(c)(3) charity does not charge for its services, but relies solely on donations and sponsorships.
Please consider making a contribution so that the Battle Buddy Response Team can continue the work they do. All funding goes toward supporting veterans and helping to make their lives better.
