Generous Grant Received from Cities 97
The DAV of MN Foundation is proud to announce we have received a $12,000 grant from Cities 97 Sampler. The grant is funded from the proceeds of the Cities 97 Sampler Volume 27 which are disbursed to Non-Profits in Minnesota.
The grant from Cities 97 will be used to help fund the upcoming vehicle purchases for the expansion of transportation services in the Twin Cities area. Last year the DAV of MN Transportation Program volunteers transported over 19,000 Veterans to their VA medical appointment. During that time our volunteers traveled over 1.4 million miles. This grant will assist the DAV of MN in its purchase of 5 new vehicles to update and expand the services offered to our Veterans.
Over the life of the vehicle that this grant will fund, thousands of Veterans will be able to get free transportation to their appointments at the Minneapolis VA. The DAV of MN Foundation would like to thank Cities 97 for their generous contribution.
