OOIDA Truckers for Troops 2019 Day 2: A project uses tiny houses to help homeless veterans get off the streets. And a Pennsylvania facility shows donations are needed, even at VA locations.
I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton.
If it’s trucking and it’s in the news, you’ll find it here. (10 minutes)
II. Tiny houses solving a big problem
Tiny houses are helping veterans who might otherwise be homeless, including access to needed services. It’s the Veterans Community Project, and it’s moving from one city to nationwide. (14 minutes)
III. Support for those who have none
Some veterans have little to any money, no family support and only the VA to rely on. Donations fill a gap for those veterans at Pennsylvania’s Hollidaysburg Veterans Home. (14 1/2 minutes)
IV. And you don’t even need to stay in the lines
Returning veterans need all kinds of help dealing with wounds physical and mental – and even something as simple as a coloring book can help. (9 1/2 minutes)
