Thank you again! Respectfully, Amy L. Jensen, School Liaison Officer (SLO)Military Resiliency Trainer (MRT), STEM Outreach Coordinator, McConnell AFB, KS 67221

“I wish I had known about this years ago when my oldest child was studying for her act. I have two children in college and am purchasing this for my son, my third, and it is a huge help. I was worried about affording the new version for him. Thank you so much for your generous support and I will most definitely pass the information along to my other military friends and family.” Antronette Williams, Military.com August 1, 2016

MagicMobility – Wheelchair Van Assistance Program

A nationwide program, which receives donated adapted vehicles and distributes them, free of charge, to local needy individuals. They have a special emphasis on helping disabled veterans, as a small token of appreciation for their dedicated service to our country. This provides a wonderful legacy for the donor, as well as the best IRS tax deduction for a vehicle donation; since the vans are not sold, but are instead transferred to a needy recipient.

If you know of someone who has an adapted van, for a wheelchair or scooter, to donate …or is in need of one, please visit www.mobilityforvets.org to learn more.
