ADAPTED RADIO SCRIPT

Memorial Day: A time when we remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and honor all veterans.

Purple Heart Homes marked the occasion last week receiving a donation from Wastequip – parent company of Toter in Statesville. It was also a chance to hear from those who have benefited from the organization which helps combat disabled vets like Samantha Christopher.

If you’d like to do something for a veteran and his or her family, Emory suggests simply knocking on the door and offering a helping hand.
