PBYR is very thankful.  Every year the Plymouth Lions make efforts to improve and serve our community.

Plymouth Lions donate $5,000 to PBYR

In May 2019, The Plymouth Lions donated $5,000 to PBYR.  The Plymouth Lion’s trust and support has been critical to PBYR’s success since 2012.  Clearly, without their support and trust,  PBYR could not have done all the positive and helpful projects to date.  We sincerely thank the Plymouth Lions and appreciate their efforts to help and improve our community.

PBYR’s most recent project was a $10,000 grant to the Heinzen-Ditter VFW that was used to help bring their restrooms up to the American Disability Act (ADA) requirements.  The Veterans that come to the VFW are often elderly and many have disabilities, mobility problems and service related injuries that impact their easy use of the restrooms, hence this project will serve Veterans for many years in the future in a very helpful and positive way. Hug a Plymouth Lion!

PBYR makes $5000 donation to VFW

The Heinzen-Ditter VFW is remodeling their restrooms to make them ADA compliant and to deal with the age, mobility problems and disabilities experienced by elderly Veterans.

PBYR will assist the VFW with monetary support for this project. If anyone with construction experience that would like to further donate some time and expertise  to assist the VFW with this project,  please coordinate directly with Bernie Stein.

Bernie  and I have reviewed costs and material. All were expertly put together as Bernie has significant experience with managing engineering projects.  Bernie is a West Point grad and currently serves as the VFW’s quartermaster.   This project includes 3 restrooms: men, women and family — all meeting ADA guidelines.

Home Depot has contributed $3000 to date and it is unknown whether they will contribute more.  Some of the estimated  costs may be increased or reduced due to Home Depot’s military discount applies to some items and not others.  I reviewed  the paperwork and plans and believe this project is a go from all perspectives.  The following is the plan :

PBYR makes an immediate $5000.00 donation to the VFW. PBYR will review the additional amount needed for the project as construction progresses with Bernie and give another donation after clarification of final costs and Home Depot’s total grant contribution and discount.

PBYR will present a Plaque to be displayed at the VFW after all construction is completed. Gary will coordinate with Sun Sailor as needed as they  want a picture of PBYR presenting  the  plaque.

This project meets the mission of PBYR and  will help Veterans for many years.  PBYR would not have been able to help without the yearly support and trust of the Plymouth Lions!!  Hug a Lion if you see one!!

PBYR and the Plymouth Lions Partner to help a veteran

helping-handsOn April 28, 2016 Plymouth Beyond the Yellow Ribbon (PBYR) finalized an emergency assistance project with a veteran that had experienced many life change events and financial distress. His car was unreliable and likely unsafe at any speed and needed replacement. PBYR offered a grant and a no interest loan and these were put toward a down payment on a good used car that was located by an officer of the Plymouth Lions. This will permit the veteran to travel to his job in Bloomington and transport his son safely. In this successful effort 2 Plymouth community organizations were able to partner and assist a veteran! The veteran was very happy!
