Due to the generous donations from our local population and visitors to our area, North Central DAV Chapter #7 was able to give a total of $44,100 for Disabled American Veterans (or their spouses) in need during the past year July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015 explained Commander Dave Sterr and Adjutant Robert Saddoris. They went on to say. “Our DAV transport van drove 16,000 miles and transported 140 Veterans to the Fargo VA. We donated many scooters, electric wheel chairs as well as many other types of medical equipment to Disabled Veterans in need.
We transported 71 loads of clothing and other items that had been donated in our bins (or picked up from you) for a total of 497,411 pounds. We have 19 collection bins placed at various locations throughout our region. Thanks to your generosity, Chapter #7 placed first in the state for pounds of clothing and other items donated! Our DAV volunteers logged 4,476 hours of service. And this doesn’t count the hours our volunteers chose NOT to record.
The North Central Chapter of the DAV thanks you from the bottom of our hearts, and asks for your continued support, so that we may continue to serve those who have served.”
