How One Grandfather is Helping the VA Community

Good Things Utah

Fred Barker is our Do the Right Thing Winner for August after his granddaughter nominated him. 

Here is her nomination:

“My grandfather is actively involved in the VA donating his time for honor guard and for local fallen vets by raising money for the VA by selling poppies in local businesses. He is full blooded Navajo who still speaks his native tongue. He helped raise his brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren He takes in all the neighbors garbage cans and shovels the sidewalks 3 houses up in each direction from his house so the kids don’t have to walk in snow.”

Thank you Fred for doing the right thing. Les Schwab honors someone every month for serving in their community with a special gift basket.
