  • Wilma Jones, 86, is a small woman with a big passion for the residents of nursing homes, especially those at Grant Manor Care and Rehabilitation Center.

    Over a 12-year-period, Jones has given hundreds of handmade quilts to nursing home residents.

    “The most I gave at once was about 45,” Jones said. “That was at Woodspoint Nursing Home in Florence, when I lived at Rabbit Hash.”

  • Veteran Gary Trumbo needed a helping hand when he retired after 21 years in the military.

    “Back in 2003, when I was discharged from Iraq, I had medical issues,” the Williamstown resident said. “Before, the VA started paying me my retirement on the pension, I was having trouble with my finances.”

    That’s where Salute Inc. came in.

    Founded in 2003 by Will and Mary Beth Beiersdorf, Salute Inc. helps meet the financial, physical and emotional needs of the military service members, veterans and their families.
