Our Mission

     The founders of Helping Hand Veterans Fund believe that the nation owes an immense debt of gratitude to all who served our country and it is incumbent upon all American citizens, independently of any government funds, to honor all our veterans with the essentials of a dignified standard of living where such is lacking.  The purpose of HHVF is to help provide essential services to veterans of all ages of all the armed forces of the USA.

     We will strive to develop the means to assist not only those newly returned warriors with transitional aid and training toward a meaningful, productive civilian life but also to provide our older veterans with the assistance required to maintain a dignified and healthy retirement.

     Helping Hand Veterans Fund will be there to provide, for all vets, services such as referrals, transportation, household assistance and, last but not least, companionship--with emphasis on those who are disabled.

We’re fortunate to live in this land of freedom and opportunity--liberties earned by the blood of heroes since the embattled farmer first resisted British oppression in 1775.   Many of those heroes made the ultimate sacrifice but there are many still among us that sacrificed much to the triumph of freedom and who are more than deserving of our gratitude.

And these are the only kind of praises we seek...

"My oldest boy needed a winter coat desperately, and thanks to you and your gift cards, I was able to get one and let all the kids choose a small gift each for themselves.  Thank you sincerely and may God bless you all."

IN MEMORIAM

The officers and members of HHVF wish to note with sadness the passing of one of our own members, Richard Joseph Kinnal, who died unexpectedly at home on November 14th. Richard had been a member of HHVF for only a short while before being taken from us. He was 73. He came from Lowell and graduated LHS Class of 1958 then served four years in the United States Coast Guard. He worked as a postal worker and retired after 40 years of service. He is survived by three children and five grandchildren. He will be missed by us all.
