Support continues to pour in for a 92-year-old Lynchburg veteran

Warm Streets brought Carroll Reeves a brand new bed, dining table and microwave

LYNCHBURG, Va. – Support continues to pour in for a 92-year-old Lynchburg veteran.  We first introduced spoke to Carroll Reeves last Friday. The World War II veteran was living in an unsafe environment. After putting him up in a new apartment, the Lynchburg Area Veterans Council asked Warm Streets to donate furniture to Reeves.  The organization, which helps those in need in the Hill City, jumped into action and brought the veteran a brand new bed, dining table, microwave, sofa and chair. 

“They were thanking me for their furniture. I said, 'no it was an honor and a privilege, cause my dad was in WWII too you know. And this is a vet 92 years old who was in WWII too. So this was a special thing for me,” Rick Hughes, founder and director of Warm Streets, said. 

"This was a surprise to me because I didn't think they would go this far. But they better than I thought they was,” Reeves said. 

Reeves said the support he's received has brought him joy.
