  1. Mr Father Robert J. Morgan is a WW11 veteran and needs help. He gets a small pension and small Social Security each year. He lives on Lake Saline in Winnfield. which has flooded several times. His address is ( ROBERT J MORGAN 724 STUMP CAMP RD, WINNFIELD, LA. 71483) He has paid for and done without because of the cost of living. Is there any way any veteran can help him His phone number is home: 318-727-9364 and he has a cell # 318-320-1390 He has my handy capped brother living with him and I told him he would get money for the coronavirus but, it seemed since he hasn’t paid taxes for a few years he did not get the stimulus package. Is there anyone who can help him get food stamps and the money promised each person. He is 95 years old this year and we have two sisters with Alzheimer’s and my brother is handy capped so I am the only one left to help. I have kidney failure and heart problems so I try to do what I can but, I need help now. They spend a little over $400 dollars a month for food. I was told by the state lady I talked to that he is entitled to food stamps and help. He has home health that comes two times a week. He is a strong man because he still cooks and repairs a few items around the house. anyone who can put up with my younger brother has to be strong. I can drive him to Alexandria I have promised him this. Let me know when we can come? Sincerely yours, Mary Trueblood 318-422-1593 I live in Shreveport, la
