Van for Disabled Police Officer
David had assistance getting a wheelchair accessible van from Workers' Compensation at the time of his injury over 21 years ago. Unfortunately, the van is in need of replacement, David is unable to work and no longer has the funds available to him to help purchase a new one for him. The cost of the van and handicap equipment together is around $70,000.00. Although there are many grants available to disabled military veterans (as there should be) there are very limited options available to police officers injured in the line of duty here at home, that is why I am coming to you for help.
I am truely grateful to everyone for helping to raise this money so that David may continue to try to live as independent as possible.
Thank you to everyone who donated towards David's new van. We have been able to raise about 80% of our goal. David's current van is on borrowed time and has been in the shop for repairs several times recently, we have found a new van in Greensboro and will be borrowing the remainder of the funds needed this week to purchase it.
We are so grateful to EVERYONE for all the donations and fundraisers. There was definitely a lot of hard work put into helping Dave by many of you and we are so humbled by your generosity.
I want to thank everyone that has helped us toward our goal! We still have quite a way to go, please continue to help me spread the word about David and his need for a new van.
Thank you soooo much!
