Phillips Charitable Organizations Award Grant to 2-Veteran Pennsylvania Family

Mrs. Terry Hardin of  Eddystone PA had the most difficult year any of us can imagine.  Her husband Charles Hardin is a veteran suffering from severe stage 4 colon cancer and in a hospice.    In addition, Mrs. Hardin’s son, SPC Kevin Hardin, U.S. Army, was killed in Iraq from shrapnel earlier this year.

The on-going medical expenses brought the Hardis to the brink of eviction and a series of other financial challenges.  Mr. Hardin’s social worker and Veteran Service Office both spoke with PCO about the family’s challenges.

PCO provided a grant in recognition of Charles and Kevin’s service and sacrifice for their country.
