Happiness for Heroes Campaign gives hope to veterans in isolation

The veteran’s home in Payson is an excellent facility, as anyone who has visited knows. However, because of the COVID pandemic our veterans have become isolated and cannot go on field trips or receive visitors.

To combat the loneliness and boredom the veteran residents are facing, the Utah Department of Veteran Affairs and the Utah Elks Veterans Program has launched the Happiness for Heroes Campaign.

The purpose of this campaign is to “rally friend and coworkers to send messages of support and gratitude to our amazing veterans.” The following forms of encouragement and well-wishing will be welcomed: videos, letters, postcards, pictures, and artwork. In support of our local veterans’ home your items can be sent to the address below.

Mervyn Sharp Bennion Veterans Home, 1551 North, Main Street, Payson, Utah 84651

Think about what might cheer up a veteran and put a package in the mail to let these folks who have done some much for our great country know they are thought of and appreciated. (Helmick is a Serve Daily contributor.)
