Walker Furniture is working to provide a better quality of life for 10 wounded U.S. military personnel and veterans in Clark County, who are in need of specialized items not generally available through the Veterans Administration with Walker Furniture's inaugural "Help for Heroes" program.

 The new program will run through July 1st and will rely on letters from the community, written on behalf of prospective recipients. Letters received by Walker Furniture will be reviewed and evaluated by an independent panel headed by Commander John Rupe of the American Legion Paradise Post 149. The post commander will personally visit each prospective recipient to evaluate their individual needs. Letters should be sent to: Larry Alterwitz, CEO Walker Furniture 301 S. Martin Luther King Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89106 FAX: (702) 384-7772 Letters can be mailed by US Postal Service, faxed, hand delivered or e-mailed to cnelson@walkerfurniture.com. Letters can also be submitted online by visiting www.walkerhelpforheroes.com The letters must be received by June 27th to be reviewed. In conjunction with Help for Heroes, Walker Furniture is also asking the community to drop off non-perishable food items and toiletries to the company’s Main Showroom at 301 S. Martin Luther King Blvd. or the Walker Warehouse/Outlet at 4150 E. Cheyenne Ave. All donated items will go toward supplying the food pantry at the American Legion Paradise Post 149. #helpforheroes
