Being there for Veterans

On Friday, April 22, 2016, the National Association of American Veterans (NAAV), President and CEO Constance A. Burns, along with Chris Paczak, MobilityWorks Vice President of Marketing and Matt Swope, BraunAbility Director of Sales Eastern United States, presented a Disabled American Veteran with a 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT, equipped with a Braun XT power side entry.

The National Association of American Veterans (NAAV) partnered with the MobilityWorks Foundation and BraunAbility to engage in a momentous opportunity to present a disabled American Veteran with much needed accessible van. This van was donated as a gift to a selected disabled veteran in need of an assisted mobility vehicle. The recipient of this vehicle was Retired Navy Veteran Charlie Johnson and his wife and caregiver Lola Johnson of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

U.S. Navy Veteran Charlie and his wife Lola were thankful to discover the National Association of American Veterans (NAAV) when they moved to Washington, D.C. When the couple met NAAV CEO Constance, their lives were changed forever. Constance reached out to the MobilityWorks Foundation to see how the couple could get an accessible vehicle. The MobilityWorks Foundation and BraunAbility partnered to donate Charlie and Lola an accessible van.

“The MobilityWorks team is excellent,” Lola said. “We are able to go more places and will be making our first trip at the end of the month. Our oldest son is getting married in Raleigh, and Charlie can enjoy himself during the drive. It is a blessing for the MobilityWorks Foundation and BraunAbility to do this for us.”
