Hi My name is Maribel. I want to help a Veteran. My goal is to raise money to purchase a good reliable vehicle for Veteran John Powell. I meet Mr. Powell a few months ago. After talking to Mr. POWELL I felt a connention. The next day on my way to the store I ran into Mr. Powell. He was on his mobile wheelchair. So I stop and chat with him. He was also going to buy groceries. I keep seeing Mr. Powell all the time in his mobile wheelchair. He was just everywhere. I had to do something. I didn't know what but I felt I had to help him. Every time I saw him I would stop and talk to him. I finally ask Mr. Powell about his family and why was he always out in the rain in the summer heat by himself. He said, "I don't have a vehicle to get around with my wife and  2 kids" This touch my heart. If I had enough money I would buy him a vehicle or if I had an extra vehicle I would gladly give it to him and his Family. But I dont. So I decided to reach out to everyone for help. Please Donate to my Fundraiser. So I can get Veteran John Powell and his family the Mobility and stability they need. Thank You so much for your support.
