We helped this veteran with a place for him and his son and daughter to live in one of our Heroes House. Then his old truck broke and was not able to be fixed. We received a Jeep Grand Cherokee, were able to fix some minor issues, and we able to give this vehicle to get to work and his kids to school. All because of your donations

Rio Rancho-based veterans assistance organization Heroes Walk Among Us (HWAU) partnered with Danlar Towing of Albuquerque to get a Raton veteran and his wife into better housing recently. A Vietnam Army veteran and his wife were living in a leaky, substandard, 6-by-8-foot pull trailer, and contacted HWAU founder Shane D'Onofrio for help after learning of the group's Wheels4Vets program. ​ HWAU has a Craig's List ad that invites people to donate old recreational vehicles.

To whom it may concern,

 

I am a disabled veteran who is unemployable due to my many disabilities, I have an old truck that I use for transportation.  I used to be able to work on older cars and trucks but not so much nowadays.  It was leaking oil pretty bad and I attempted a few repairs myself, but the labor killed me!  I asked Shane at Heroes Walk Among Us for help with this; let me just say that from start to finish I was driving in my truck fully fixed in 6 days!  I was so impressed at how quickly they responded to me asking for help and how they didn't just fix one or two things, they fixed the whole thing!  I am so great-full for all the help they provided me, they did an amazing job, my truck runs and I don't have to worry about not eating or paying bills because I paid for my truck to be fixed, and I don't have to worry about being stranded out in NM(scary and I did two tours in the sandbox).  I have enough worries and stress and this was one of them but now it's not.  I always said you cannot put a price tag on sanity and it's true.  One less worry for me is like 20 for the rest of the world.  If it was not for Shane and his amazing organization I wouldn't have received the help I needed and I would not be able to go to my VA appointments or do daily things like school.  I am forever great-full to Shane and all the other amazing veterans at Heroes Walk Among Us, without people like them, well I don't want to think about that because it would be a dim place, this world if it weren't for them.  They have helped out so many veterans selflessly and without asking for anything but a thank you in return.  God bless them and thank you again for all the help you have given me, I am blessed to know them and I will tell everyone I know to donate to them to help out others just like me.  Thank you for your time and have a blessed day.

Wheels4vets.org, GOT MY TRUCK FIXED.

I need my truck fixed to get to work I did not have the funding.  The guys at Wheels4Vets "Heroes Walk Among Us", contacted a great company and within 5 days my truck was fixed and back on the road.  I was able to even get a loaner car to get to my job. They covered the $3,500 to fix my F-150.

G, Bolin, USArmy.

Wheels 4 Vets helped me get my truck fixed by helping me pay for the repairs on my 1989 Dodge Dakota Sport. I had about $3,000.00 in repairs on the truck and Wheels 4 Vets helped me by covering almost all the cost to get much-needed repairs done on my truck that I could not have had done otherwise. Wheels 4 Vets helped me keep my truck going so that I can continue going to school and work. 

Thank you Wheels 4 Vets
