Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Public Relations Officer Mike Petty reached out to the facility in hopes of being able to donate over $500 worth of goods to Michelle’s cause. Mike, and his organization, were generous enough to donate much-needed items including candies, razors, deodorants, toothpaste, mouthwash, and other various hygiene items. Mike Petty stated, “Vets helping Vets, that’s what it’s all about.” The association is currently planning a motorcycle fundraiser event and those wishing to participate can reach him at (812) 698-2544.

Wabash Valley Correctional Facility is still seeking donations. Items traditionally donated include: disposable razors, chap stick, playing cards, mixed nuts, and beef jerky. In addition, funds are being collected to help pay the shipping costs.
