The post received a donation, to be spent on veterans in Lyme and Old Lyme and/or their families, who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. The post wants to use the donation to defray costs for a rental payment or mortgage interest payment or pay for utility or home heating fuel, medical expenses, medications, eyeglasses, food and incidentals, children's clothing or durable medical equipment. The post could also temporarily defray the costs of vehicle repairs and maintenance, repairs, or renovations to make a veteran's home handicapped accessible.
