Listening Post of Lower Delaware Needs Community Help

The Listening Post for Lower Delaware (LPLODEL) provides many services for the Veterans in Kent and Sussex Counties.  The transportation services of LPLODEL take Veterans to the V.A. hospitals in Elsmere, DE and Lebanon, PA. The programs also helps Veterans apply for Veterans Affairs assistance; including disability and home loans.  For homeless Veterans LPLODEL helps connect those individuals with shelters and assists in the process of moving them from transitional housing to permanent housing. 

The transportation services take approximately 8 Veterans once a week to V.A. hospitals in Northern Delaware and Pennsylvania. Program Director Mike Rowe’s day begins at 4:30 am when he gases up the van and begins his trip around the lower counties picking up Veterans.  Due to the increase in gas prices the LPLODEL may have to cut back to transporting Veterans to the V.A. hospitals once or twice a month. Since Southern Delaware is such a rural area there is almost no public transportation that can help these Veterans to the V.A. hospitals.   

Mike Rowe and the rest of the team at People’s Place are asking for any donations so that these services can continue for our Veterans.  Not only monetary donations to help with escalating gas prices but any contribution that will help the LPLODEL provides assistance.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the People’s Place LPLODEL Program please send a check made out to “People’s Place/LPLODEL” to 1129 Airport Rd., Milford, DE 19963.  For any additional information contact Mike Rowe at 422-8033, ext. 173 or mrowe@peoplesplace2.com.
