Bringing the Sunshine with Womenade
Affectionately known as “Mr. Sunshine,” this Veteran usually shares his beaming personality with the world. Rainclouds began to move in after weeks of walking in the sweltering Florida heat to his James A. Haley VA job due to a lack of transportation. Most of the time, Mr. Sunshine’s favorite sound is music from the 70s, but thanks to Womenade of Tampa it became the humming sound of his fire engine red 1999 Mustang.
In the last year, Mr. Sunshine has finished his education, moved out of a temporary Veteran’s housing facility, and established himself by holding down a job and living in his newly well-appointed apartment. When Operation: Veteran Connect heard finances to replace his car battery were causing him hardship, Womenade was approached with the request for assistance.
The response from this charitable organization was fast and efficient. Operation: Veteran Connect Members were able to hand deliver a battery. Mr. Sunshine grabbed a few tools and, in a snap, his mustang was back in working order. His smile was radiant and his appreciation for Womenade’s generosity was undeniable. Thank you, Womenade of Tampa.
