The Green-based Catherine Richards Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and Nazir #27 Daughters of Mokanna, recently presented a fully motorized scooter to VFW Post 9904 in North Canton.
Kate Oesch, a member of both organizations, was searching for someone who could use the scooter, and preferred it go to assist veterans and Sharon Snowden, also a member of both organizations, found a home for it with VFW Post 9904.
The presentation was attended by Post Commander Rodney Bonsky, Auxiliary President Kelly Bonsky, General Manager Dan Moore, several veterans and 10 women representing the DAR and Nazir #27.
“Our veterans have protected our democracy, our freedom, our way of life,” said Regent Megan Al Chebaina of the Catherine Richards Chapter. “We are truly privileged to have such noble and extraordinary citizens.”
Snowden reiterated appreciation to Oesch “for her special selfless ways which led you to choose to serve our wounded warriors”.
Bonsky went on to say “we really appreciate the donation, and we will definitely put it to good use. We can’t do enough for our veterans; thank you and God bless you for everything you do.”
“The scooter will be maintained by the VFW and will be loaned out to those in need," said Moore. "We are thankful for how many veterans this will help. It is truly appreciated."
Moore also thanked the groups for thinking of their Post and disabled veterans.
