Coronavirus put a halt on many large community fundraising events across the country, but the need for help is still there and more prevalent than ever.
That rings true for nonprofit organization Crusaders for Veterans here on the Coast.
After all of CFV’s fundraising events were canceled this year, two local veterans now need your help. Sixty-six year-old Deanna Korndorffer and 74-year-old Alphonse Lind are both disabled and each of their homes are experiencing roof and water damage, mold, and rotting floors among other things.
Both on small fixed incomes, they’re asking volunteers to lend a helping hand with repairs to keep them in their homes.
Crusaders for Veterans Founder Kevin Cuttill says because of COVID-19, this won’t be a unified group effort, but they do want to continue to assist our coastal veterans in their time of need. “Our involvement in the community has really come to a standstill because of COVID. So those of you who look out for veterans, those of you who want to help veterans come out here, on your own time. Just call them, make arrangements, see what you can do. Every little bit helps.”
Alphonse lives in Diamondhead. To contact Alphonse call 228-216-8512. Deanna lives in Picayune. To contact Deanna call 228-304-2019.
