A fence may seem trivial. But to the women and children at the Neighborhood Center of West Volusia, the fence that Chuck Heacock installed means a lot. It allows the children to safely enjoy the butterfly garden and swing set and it ensures the privacy of residents. Chuck Heacock uses his time, resources and skills to help the women and children housed at the Neighborhood Center, a homeless shelter and transitional housing center.

What is the greatest gift that you can give to veterans of the “greatest generation?”  Often, just a heartfelt thanks.

Volunteers of the Volusia Honor Air are trying to deliver a gift of thanks to former service members in the Daytona Beach area by ensuring that every World War II veteran has the opportunity to see the National Word War II Memorial.

The Memorial opened to the public in April 2004 at a time when WWII veterans were passing away at a rate of more than 1,000 per day. Many never lived to see the monument erected in their honor.
