LAS VEGAS – June 20, 2022 – Walker Furniture is seeking letters of recommendation for the company’s eighth annual “Help for Heroes” program to help injured US servicemen and veterans in Clark County in need of specialized furniture. Think about how important a letter can be to help someone in need after what they’ve donated to their country.
“Walker Furniture created the ‘Help for Heroes’ program to help make everyday life a little easier for an often overlooked segment of our community,” said owner Larry Alterwitz. “This year, the program will provide some relief to 12 active servicemen and/or veterans.”
The “Help for Heroes” program has letters from the community describing the situation of potential recipients. Walker Furniture will supply certain necessary items that are not generally available from the US Department of Veterans Affairs, such as stairlifts, adjustable beds, new mattresses, dining sets, and a variety of other furniture. Each delivery will be specific to the needs of each recipient. The deadline for submitting a letter is Sunday, August 14, 2022, and the final 12 local heroes will be notified the week of August 15.
Walker partners with the American Legion, Paradise Post 149, which assists in the review, evaluation and final selection of the cards.
“We need to remember and recognize what these men and women sacrificed and did for us,” said Alterwitz. “We strive to honor the men and women who serve our country, and this is a chance to help and give thanks.”
Several local nonprofits help with Help for Heroes, including the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, which provides food and other items to beneficiaries if needed, as well as support in many other areas. John Mull’s – Road Kill Grill partners and offers lunch for veterans and their families at a special private event.
There are many ways to send a letter via Sunday, August 14, 2022 deadline:
