Celebrating our 5th anniversary of the CT. Chapter of House of Heroes, more than 50 volunteers gave up their Memorial Day Saturday to help a WWII Veteran in Guilford and a former Milford Police Officer. Our Guilford Veteran is part of a family who has served our nation continuously since the 1700's. His home was in need of a ramp and a few other repairs that will help keep him stay safe and in his home for years to come. Our police officer, a 32-year-old former Milford police officer and newly appointed U.S. State Department diplomatic security agent who was suddenly paralyzed from the waist down one year ago due to a rare, aggressive form of multiple sclerosis was helped by over 40 volunteers. It was truly a remarkable day and one filled with great generosity and give-backs.
In addition to volunteer officers from the Milford, Hamden, Seymour and Hartford Police Departments, a partial listing of volunteers and contractors donating services Saturday in North Haven and Guilford include Biltmore Construction, Hamden; F.J. Miller Construction Company, Hamden; the Central Connecticut State University Dance Team, New Britain; Robert Clarke, LLC, Bridgeport; David Cote, LLC, Bethany; HQ Dumpsters, Southington and West Rock Materials, Woodbridge.
A special thank you to K&J Tree Service in Hamden who took out 3 large trees in North Haven and to HB Communications who helped us set up a live feed with our Police officer in India. Both companies were nothing short of timely, generous and professional. HOHCT is so grateful.
