DAV Donor Connect

I hope you are enjoying the burst of Minnesota winter we recently received. I have received a plentitude of calls recently about ramps. I would like to find out if there are any contacts for ramps you may know of (businesses/charities ext.) The ramp requests I have received range from a veteran recently becoming an amputee and requiring a ramp for 4 steps into his home and another request for a veteran in his 90’s who fell while attempting to carry his wife down the exterior steps of their home because she cannot walk up and down the stairs on her own. I know a few DAV Chapters have notified me they were installing ramps for veterans or had supplied funds for the building of a ramp as service projects- There has to be more we can do to assist veterans needing ramps to allow them to stay in their homes and we cannot expect DAV Chapters to purchase ramps to fill every need.

I hope you all are faring well with this cold weather snap we have been having. I am proud to say our request list has dwindled to only a few items and many of the requests remaining I am running down leads to fulfill them.

I am making many new business connections which seem to be beneficial for the items unable to be listed with the Donor Connect Program or donors unable to maintain items. If you have any businesses or programs you think would benefit from the Donor Connect information please let me know and I can reach out to them or feel free to forward my contact information.

To all of you who have served our country I sincerely thank you for your service as we near Veterans Day this weekend. “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” John F. Kennedy

I have attached the most recent Donor Connect Inventory to this message. Requests are being filled all over the state and the request list appears to be mainly specialty items and ramps remaining. Many of the requests I receive are able to be filled by either the Donor Connect database or connections with different organizations/people throughout the state so I want to send a heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who receives these messages!

DAV Donor Connect Update – August 21, 2017

DAV Donor Connect Update 08/21/2017

 

Good Morning Donor Connect Friends!

I apologize for not getting the list out last week, it seemed as if it just wasn’t meant to be until this morning and I was actually able to remove two wheelchairs and add an amazing ramp which is also listed towards the end in the featured item section I’ve added.

Within the last two weeks I have been fortunate enough to have had a small part in connecting a Veteran to a handicap van which Hutchinson Chapter 37 had available after upgrading one of their vehicles. I have also been fortunate enough to help St. Cloud Chapter 9 connect a Jazzy 600 electric-wheelchair 08/18/2017 to a Clearwater Veteran after the chapter purchased new batteries for it!

I wanted to thank you all for being so willing to work with me and grow the Donor Connect Program to help get Veterans and their family members items they need, I am truly indebted to you all!

Current requests – I received a call this morning that there is a Veteran in the Brainerd MN area in need of two manual wheelchairs. If there is anyone that has information on chairs that are in the area please forward that information to me.

If you know anyone who could benefit from the information in this email please feel free to share the information or have them contact me with questions.
