In April 2017, a Plymouth family needed assistance for the widow of a veteran and they contacted PBYR. The widow, 81 years old had been recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and as a result needed to go to assisted living. Many of her personal belongings were damaged by an infestation of mice when she left Minnesota for the winter. PBYR’s Board discussed the request and assisted the family with gift certificates to secure needed transition items that would help set up her new home as well as locating other resources suggested by the FAC. PBYR’s fast response was greatly appreciated. The family writes:
We are absolutely astounded at this benevolence and generosity. Thank you so much, the depth and breadth of our gratitude is unspeakable. M__ is weeping with joy!

I hope you will please add me to your future mailing list as we would like to return our gratitude to other Veteran’s and their families in the future.
Warm regards, __”
