Veterans Candy Man

As a resident here at Payson's Bennion Central Utah Veterans Home I see all types of various meaningful efforts to Serve us. I've recently discovered one of the most interesting forms of Community Service. One of our very own residents consistently accomplishes this on behalf of other residents and visitors as well as the incredible staff here.

A fulltime resident who insists on staying anonymous donates, twice per month, $200--$600 in candy for the front desk here at the Vets home. At anywhere from $400 to as much as $1200 per month, it is given out generously to all visitors, residents and staff. We would surely like to acknowledge and thank the generosity of this Veteran who gives of his personal resources in addition to his time to personally purchase all that candy. However, he insists on remaining anonymous.

Above is a photo of one of his generously purchased loads from a day of his shopping spree along with Jenna from our always helpful Recreation Department.
