June 2015 
The team at Heidrea for Heroes strives each day to connect with military veterans in need of a helping hand from southeastern Massachusetts.  We encourage you to take a few minutes to read about our recent veteran projects; a great opportunity for a qualified veteran to receive a free all-terrain wheelchair; and a unique upcoming Tall Ship cruise event! Most importantly, if you know a veteran who would benefit from the type of support we offer, please share our information and encourage him/her to apply for support. 

Project Highlights
Making a difference, one life at a time
The past few months have been busy for the H4H team, as we have taken on and completed several projects throughout our service area. Here are just a few of the highlights:  
  • Just this week, we took care of the purchase and installation of a wheelchair ramp for a Navy veteran in Hingham, allo wing him self-sufficient access to the outdoors. 
  • This spring, we had the great pleasure of assisting a WWII Navy veteran from Weymouth with repairs to his deteriorated front stairs. It was a privilege to hear his stories of the action he saw in Iwo Jima and the Asia Pacific, and we were delighted to provide him with a beautiful set of newly-built replacement stairs.  
  • In early May, we completed our full home remodel project for a Wareham veteran and are grateful to the many subcontractors and vendors from throughout the community who gave their time and talent to this lengthy project! 
  • In March, H4H was glad to lend a hand to a Navy veteran and Plymouth firefighter who is facing a battle with cancer and needed assistance with gas expenses getting to and from his frequent treatment visits in Boston.

Essay Contest for Action TrackChair
June 4 - June 22, 2015

Our team at Heidrea for Heroes is offering a deserving veteran the chance to win a free Action TrackChair, valued at over $10,000, through an essay contest.

The Action TrackChair is an all-terrain wheelchair, ideal for the veteran who likes to get to places which might otherwise be difficult to access - such as for hunting, fishing, going out to the beach, or just enjoying time in the forest.

 

We aim to award this valuable resource to a wheelchair-dependent veteran living on the South Shore, South Coast, Cape Cod, or Metrowest area who is an outdoor recreation enthusiast and can benefit tremendously from an Action TrackChair.
