New "Motorized wheelchair" partnership launched with AmVets

AmVets Post 181 and our VVA Chapter 243 are working to support their motorized chair program.

We have partnered with Amvets to provide FREE motorized wheelchairs to veterans ...or immediate family members of a veteran who are in need!

Please contact us if you would like to know more about this new program!

The chair will be provided as a gift and we ask that when you no longer have a need for the chair please gi, please gift it back to the Chapter sos we may pas it along to another veteran in need.

If you have a surplus chair and no longer have a need, please consider a donation to our Chapter.

We will refurbish and renew the chair and then gift it back out to another veteran in need...at NO cost to recipient!

More information on motorized chair program!

We will deliver your chair at NO cost.

If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.

We will pickup your donated chair at NO cost.

Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
