He's a veteran who's made it his mission to help other vets, and for Douglas "Papa" Dee: earning non–profit certification is a huge deal.
"Generate more of what we're looking for the money and the furniture and the clothing and whatever we can get. And I'm pretty excited I think it can take us to another level," said Papa.
Papa has been delivering household items to struggling vets in the area for more than 8 years, but it was just a few weeks ago he officially became a non–profit.
Now, anyone who donates can write off their gift on their taxes.
While today's the last day for 2013 write offs, papa says they're in need all year long. To donate, call papa at 309–269–7302.
