17 Mar Heidrea for Heroes
The Solstice Foundation designated $2,000 to Heidrea for Heroes, a Plymouth-based organization dedicated to supporting US Veterans in need as part of their Lift 21 program.
Established in 2013 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to provide important support services to our military men and women upon their return to civilian life Heidrea for Heroes offers a range of support designed for both short- and long-term positive impact for veterans who can benefit from a helping hand.
The Lift 21 initiative was created to lift a burden for 21 deserving veterans throughout Southeastern Massachusetts between January 1 and June 30th. The number 21 was selected symbolically in recognition of a 21-gun salute, however the organization exceeded that goal ahead of schedule and fulfilled projects for 24 veterans living throughout southeastern Massachusetts.
Projects have included doorway reconstruction for wheelchair access, oil burner replacement, installation of a stair lift, multiple wheelchair ramps, emergency home repairs, moving labor, and more.
