I am writing on behalf of John Withers to express how thankful he is that you all came and arranged to take down the massive tree that was leaning over his carport. He had been so stressed about that tree. The crew that you all arranged did an amazing job and were very kind.

John Withers enlisted in the Marines in 1966. He served in Vietnam, Thailand, and Hawaii. He retired after serving twenty years in the Marines. He is on full disability because of exposure to Agent Orange. Complications with diabetes lead to kidney failure. It is hard for him to admit how much help he needs now. Guardian Community made a lasting impression with this marine and his neighbors. Thank you.

  • Malik started his law enforcement path early, inspired to serve. At 15, he joined the North Miami Beach Police as a Police Explorer and later served five years in the U.S. Navy, continuing in the U.S. Airforce National Guard.

    On March 26, 2023, Officer Daricaud was tragically shot in the neck during a traffic stop. Despite this, he remains stable and is courageously recovering. His journey ahead is tough, but he’s hopeful.

    During this time, his wife and son’s love supports Officer Daricaud. Yet, with hospital and rehab costs, plus lost income, his family faces financial challenges.

  • Blair Didion, a U.S. Army Medic from 2001-2008, bravely served two tours in Iraq. In 2006, he sustained multiple spinal fractures in combat, marking his service with valor. Born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio, Blair’s life post-service has been challenging.

    Recently, Blair, along with his wife and their beloved dog and cat, faced eviction and homelessness. Our organization stepped in to assist, ensuring they find a new home and regain stability. We’re committed to supporting Blair and his family during this difficult period.
