DAV Van Schedule
Volunteer Opportunities -- Drive a Van
 
http://www.dav.org/images/TNVan.pngIn 1922, Henry T. Ford donated 50 Model-T Fords to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) for transporting World War I veterans. What was needed then, is still needed today in Oregon--reliable transportation and volunteer drivers.
 
Oregon volunteer drivers must have a valid drivers license and good driving record. To be a volunteer driver for the Portland VA Medical Center, contact the DAV coordinator at 1-800-949-1004, ext. 57804 or ext. 56957. For the Roseburg VA Health Care System call 541-440-1293: 541-826-2111 ext. 3619.

About the Disabled American Veterans
 
The 1.2 million-member Disabled American Veterans (DAV) is a non-profit 501(c)(4) charity dedicated to building better lives for America’s disabled veterans and their families. The DAV was founded in 1920 by disabled veterans returning from World War I to represent their unique interests. In 1932, the DAV was congressionally chartered as the official voice of the nation’s wartime disabled veterans.
 
With our brave Americans leaving the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, the DAV’s services and advocacy are as relevant and critical today as in any time in our nation’s history. Annually, the DAV represents more than 200,000 veterans and their dependents with claims for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense. DAV can be reached toll-free by calling 1-877-426-2838.
