Army Veteran Receives Help On The 244th Birthday of the Army

News Release, Habitat for Humanity

Friday June 14th, the birthday of the United States Army and Flag Day seemed to be fitting for Patuxent Habitat for Humanity Veteran Critical Repair program in partnership with Christmas in April, Calvert County, Exelon Militaries Actively Connected (EMAC) and several other volunteers to build a ramp for the Army veteran John Smith and his wife in Great Mills, MD. Mr. & Mrs. Smiths’ need was brought to our attention from the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans Organization (D.A.V.).

We are always in need of volunteers from professional (plumbers, roofers, carpenters etc.)  to those who just want to help someone. Patuxent Habitat for Humanity believes: Everyone especially our veterans deserve a decent place to live, with the dignity they have earned by serving us!

The Patuxent Habitat for Humanity Veteran Critical Repair Program is designed to repair homes for military veterans and their families. The program will assist with repairs identified in Habitat’s Critical Home Repair guidelines that may vary from roof repair and structural wall repairs to installing wheel chair ramps and remodeling bathrooms to be easily used by veterans with disabilities. If you would like to donate or volunteer for veteran programs please call Laurie at 301-863-6227×16 or email laurie@patuxenthabitat.org  for more information.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
