Purple Heart Recipient Receives A/C

With help from Veterans of Operation Iraqi/Enduring Freedom (VOIEF), and an installment team from Air Solutions, Purple Heart recipient Stan Powell received what could be considered a “cool act of kindness”.

Powell, a Groves, Tx. resident, and a Purple Heart recipient, received a free air conditioning unit for his home on Friday. His original request in April 2014 resulted in temporary window units for the last 15 months. With help from the community and corporate donations, along with VOIEF, Powell was able to enjoy the new AC unit on Friday.

“Once we contacted Goodman Manufacturing and Air Solutions, we said 'let’s get it done' and within a matter of weeks it was taken care of” said Kurt Schwab, national director for VOIEF.

Schwab says that his organization VOIEF assists veterans with their rent and utility bills various other needs.
