They supported our country. Some fought, some giving the ultimate sacrifice. But all served to support this country of ours and never blinked an eye. Now, many of those veterans of the military need our support.

The Grand Rapids Michigan Home For Veterans has been providing services since 1885, and they've never stopped. Now with the opening of the beautiful new facility, they're able to offer even more compassionate care. They have a  professional staff that focuses on long-term and short-term care, rehab and therapy, dementia and memory care and palliative care, and so much more.

However, with the holidays, we don't want to forget what the men and women have done for our country. Many have only the staff to turn to with family and friends all gone. So the Grand Rapids Michigan Home For Veterans has put out a wish list that really would be a God send for the residents, and the home. What do you think? Can you help support a veteran?

There are many ways you can help.
