Sanford Kramer Helps Family of Veteran Suffering from PTSD
Sanford Kramer Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc teamed up with the Quality of Life Foundation to donate more than $1,000 in electrical repair services to the family of a veteran in need. The Quality of Life Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting families who provide daily care to catastrophically wounded, ill, or injured veterans, contacted Sanford Kramer in search of an electrician to repair the family’s outdoor lamp post and flood lights.
Marc Trepanier, an Army veteran who requires full-time care while suffering from severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), has been receiving intensive treatment for his “invisible wounds” and has been unable to work. His wife and caregiver suffers from multiple sclerosis, which has limited not only her physical ability but also her ability to work.
As the father of an active military member and a lifelong advocate for veterans in need, Company President Sanford Kramer was eager to help this family. Mr. Kramer has been a longtime donor to several organizations supporting the military including the Wounded Warrior Project and the United Service Organization (USO).
On Monday, June 17th Michael Ryland, Sanford Kramer’s expert electrician visited the Trepanier’s home. Mr. Ryland spent the day with the family, replacing their outdoor flood lights and installing a new lamp post in their front yard. “I’ve fallen twice in the dark because I couldn’t see and just knowing the lights work is a huge load off my chest,” said Mrs. Trepanier about the service she received. “Marc gets very agitated when he can’t see what’s outside at night, so it’s brought a lot of peace to us even in the past few days.”
