The Veterans Support Group (MCVSG) is a 501(C) (3) organization that consists of a representative of every veteran's organization in Marshall County. One function the MCVSG is involved in is the transportation of veterans to and from medical appointments. The wheelchair accessible van used by the group is in need of replacement. A replacement vehicle that meets the need of veterans will cost approximately $70,000. The MCVSG is soliciting donations for the purpose of purchasing this new van. To that end, the MCVSG is asking for your generous tax-deductible donation. To make that donation, contact Garry Smethers at (270) 210-0754 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or send your check to the MCVSG in care of Marshall County Judge Executive Officer at 1101 Main Street, Benton KY, 42025.
