As summer temperatures continue to rise a group in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is helping a veteran and his mother cool down.
Shane Hutcheson is with a local group called "Aid a Veteran". The groups main goal is to give back to our country's veterans. The group was happy to help their local veteran and his mother as they were suffering without air conditioning.
Hutcheson humbly shares,
"We're just doing what we say we do...People donate to us to help our veterans".
With just a little time and effort their small organization was born.
“I put together some fundraisers. We got out there in the field, started talking to people and started generating the funds,” Hutcheson said.
Hutcheson noted that recently RK Gun Shows as well as other community members helped to raise the non profit's funds at an organized even at Camp Jordan.
The Tuesday following the event, the donations were given to David Cunningham. Cunningham is a paralyzed veteran. Due to his sustained spinal injuries, Cunningham has a harder time regulation his body temperature than the average person.
Their only source of air conditioning went out a month ago and Cunningham and his mother simply did not have the funds to replace it.
Shortly after Cunningham's mother reached out to "Aid A Veteran", they showed up at their home with not one, but two window units for both the upstairs and downstairs of their home.
With temperatures beginning to hit the upper 90's, these air conditioning units couldn't have arrived at a more convenient time.
Healing Heroes Network (HHN) is a non-profit 501c3 charity which has provided needed programs and services to our veterans since 2008.
As a non-profit organization, HHN's primary focus is to provide the means for wounded warriors to get the treatment and therapies they deserve and need.
Along with sweepstakes advertised at Hero Giveaway, HHN solely relies on the graciousness of their followers on Facebook through donations, merchandise, and entries to HG's giveaways.
