  • Sue Gold and Lynn White joined our meeting to explain the organization's purpose
  • Volunteers are trained and matched with a veteran in need of companionship
  • Volunteers also help with applying for VA benefits and referring to other appropriate programs
  • During pandemic, in-person visits are not allowed - they receive phone calls and care packs
  • An emergency fund has been created to help with unexpected bills such as furnace or car repairs
  • Gift cards are distributed in $100 increments for groceries, fuel, and medication
  • There are currently 68 veterans matched with a volunteer and 12 in process
  • Most Vet 2 Vet participants should be aware of Honor Flight (and some have attended)
  • Brenda found thermometers on Amazon for $74.99
  • Brian will contact Black Bear Medical for pricing
  • We would like to encourage other Rotary clubs to participate in this project as well (might be motivational for them, and helpful for publicity)
  • Conrad will check in with Seal Rock/Wardwell this weekend
  • Conrad and Jim Godbout are going to Biddeford Second Congregational Church on Friday to assess the scope of work needed
  • A charitable request form will be created for future donation requests - will be helpful to have paper trail for reporting/accounting
  • Status of fuel funds is unclear, Conrad to check with Sue
Have a great weekend!
