Friends of Disabled Veterans in Carroll County


Friends of D.A.V. In Carroll County


Report to Veterans Advisory Council June 18,2019


Friends of DAV in Carroll County has had a very busy month and to date we have had over 32 Veterans Appointments and donations. We had 4 trips to Va Hospital in Baltimore. A Veteran from Westminster Post 31 American Legion donated a power scooter. We now have 4 oxygen concentrators available for a veteran. We are in the process of donating a power scooter to a local veteran.

Currently, we are accepting cars (running), Trucks, vans, as well as durable medical equipment (no hospital beds). Our 2001 Chevy 3500 Express Van is repaired and running.

Our Fund Raiser at Hampstead Walmart was a great success. We had 7 volunteers help Friends of DAV in Carroll County collect $1170.00. We also recruited three new drivers for our vans.

I am pleased to report that thanks to VAC member Marc Fisher who referred us to Carroll County Realtors Foundation who in turn referred us to the Carroll Hospital Foundation for a grant of one or two AED (Automatic External Defibrillators )

In closing, I am pleased to report that we received a $45,000 grant from the Kahlert Foundaton. We will be using part of this grant money to purchase a used van with wheel chair ramp in the near future. We would like to thank the Carroll County Government for their support as well as the Friends of DAV in Carroll County for volunteering to.make our organization.succesful.
