Steve Edens served our country honorably for 9 years in both the United States Marine Corps and the United States Army during the 1970's and 1980's. Today, Steve is a 59 year old severely disabled Veteran residing in Arcadia, Indiana. Steve is unable to work because of his disabilities and receives about $500/month income. Steve desperately needs a new mobile home and members of the Cicero American Legion Post 341 respectfully request donations from veterans and concerned citizens to enable us to purchase Steve a new home.
His current mobile home has multiple leaks in the roof that allow water through the living room ceiling every time it rains. When members of American Legion Post 341 were made aware of Steve's situation and visited his home, they observed multiple large buckets in the living room collecting rain water and the ceiling was concaved from water damage and supported by several jack-posts. The subfloor also has significant water damage because these leaks have been occurring for several years. In addition, Steve's daughter and 3 year old grandson will soon be living with Steve (so he can assist his daughter) because of health issues she is battling.
The goal is to have Steve (and his daughter and grandson) a new home by Thanksgiving. Generous donations from concerned Americans are necessary to make this possible. The plan is to demolish the current mobile home, through the service of volunteers, when the new home is available. Also, because of damp conditions in the home, much of the furniture will need to be replaced and a handicap ramp constructed to allow Steve access. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of the donations will go to meet Steve's needs. Thank you for your donation!
