Sparta Book Store is thrilled donate the proceeds of book sales from Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

On hand at the book store on Saturday was Sandy Mitchell, the executive director of Project Help, and Donna Fell, the owner of the store, along with a continuing stream of customers who came by to shop for the cause and take advantage of the 10 percent discount.

“Many of the customers stopped by at our table to chat about how Project Help plays in intragyral part in the recovery from a variety of challenges faced by our veterans, many of whom are suffering with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and other maladies, including physical, emotional and mental issues. Re-integrations is difficult at best, but when coupled with the war in their heads, it makes it so much worse” said Sandy Mitchell, Executive Director of Project Help”

Project Help is instrumental in providing guidance for veterans struggling with many issues.

“We collaborate with other organizations to provide assistance in many ways to alleviate the suffering our vets are dealing with. Financial, housing, employment, legal and many other problems are addressed”, said Sandy Mitchell, Executive Director of Project Help.

“Our campaign to raise $25K for our Veterans Hardship Fund, launched at our Visions in Black and White art auction on Nov. 2, 2017. It was a big success and we will repeat Visions in 2018. Throughout the year, we do many fundraising events to support our mission,” said Mitchell. Maintaining that working capital of $25K is an ongoing process and demands a good bit of time and resources.

The Veterans Hardship Fund is to be used exclusively to help veterans and their families with financial hardships and is a grant based program. “For a period of time, Project Help was part of another fund and was able to request grants for vets through it. The turnaround time got to be an issue and thus we are establishing our own fund with our own rules”, said Mitchell, hoping to improve service to veterans in dire need.
