Recent Fire Mission

We are currently dealing with a Code Red, concerning a wonderful Veteran in Pioneer OH. He is a retired veteran without any family and only his beautiful pets to keep him company. He has lived in a camper for the last 12 years and the furnace and water quick working, the windows are held in with tape, and there are holes in the floors. He lives off of SSI, which is next to nothing, and he is a very proud gentleman! This HONORABLE VETERAN deserves BETTER, and we at RAW and going to try and help him. We are looking at getting him a new trailer. And until then, we are doing what we can to keep him and his lovely little fur family alive. We have brought him straw to put around the bottom of the camper to keep the wind out. And are looking at heaters for the inside, and plastic for the windows.  Any and all help would be appreciated!
