Wheelchairs for Veterans


chair1As you know we have planned to provide 1,800 wheelchairs this Columbian Year for veterans in need of mobility throughout California. To date we have conducted many Wheelchair Sundays and many other wheelchair events all over the State to support this goal.

Many of our Brothers and their families are helping with this great program and we thank all of them for their efforts. We understand that not every Council can do a Wheelchair Sunday or maybe not even another type of wheelchair event, but every Council and most Brother Knights can do something.

During this Christmas Season please consider a gift to a veteran to show your gratitude for their service. Most of us will spend $150.00 on a family meal out this Christmas season. With that same $150.00 you can provide a wheelchair which will change a Veteran’s life forever. During this Christmas season please consider a donation to this year’s Wheelchair Drive from your Council, your Assembly, or from you and your family personally to say THANK YOU to a veteran of this great State we all call home.

You can make your tax deductible donation to the American Wheelchair Mission by sending it to the following address:

American Wheelchair Mission
2600 E. Seltice Way, Suite A-172
Post Falls, Idaho 83854

Please note “For Veterans” on your check in the memo block Thank you so much for putting others first during this Christmas season. Remember, if it wasn’t for a veteran we wouldn’t have the freedoms we have today as an American.
