In the spring of 2017 we decided to undergo a project for a group of veterans that is extremely active in the community - the Shreve, Ohio based American Legion Post 67. The Shreve Post is constantly assisting their fellow veterans by actively participating on trips to Washington, D.C. so that less-fortunate veterans can observe our nations various monuments and memorials, caring for military grave sites, providing color guard services, and many more. We felt we could help them in their fundraising efforts by completing a project that would allow them to expand what their facility has to offer. Patios For Patriots would like to thank the members of the American Legion Post 67 for their service to our country and their continued service to veterans and the community.
Hilltop Villa is a local group home facility in Wooster, Ohio. In our first year of operations, Patios For Patriots came in contact with the folks that operate the facility, and through various conversations we discovered that the home consistently takes in veterans of country's military. These veterans often times have no other place to go and, in many cases, have no family that actively engages with them in their lives. We decided that we wanted to complete a project for the home as a way of saying thank you to a group of veterans who we felt were in need of feeling appreciated. In addition to completing an outdoor living area in two different locations on the property, a group of volunteers also conducted a work day to help with things like painting, staining, cleaning up the landscaping, roof repairs, drainage, and tree removal. Patios For Patriots would like to thank the past, present, and future veterans that stay at Hilltop Villa for their service to our country.
