Reno Chapter 1 has a rich history of assisting our disabled veterans and dependents. The monies raised from our projects goes to things such as: Purchasing vans to provide transportation to veterans from their homes to the Reno VA Medical Center. Vans have been purchased for Susanville, CA; Winnemucca, NV; Fallon, NV; Hawthorne, NV; and, Gardnerville, NV.
Additionally, we have funded trips to the Winter Games held in Colorado and sponsored by the Disabled American Veterans and the Department of Veterans Affairs, giving disabled veterans a chance to bolster their self-confidence and to show themselves that they can perform on the ski slopes, whether missing limbs or due to blindness.
Funds have also been donated to the Reno VA Medical Center for numerous projects, with one donation of $15,000 going toward the hospice center to provide facilities that give the veterans and their families a chance to spend quality time together at a time of need.
DAV Chapter 1 is proud of its accomplishments. If you are a member and haven't been to a meeting in some time, we invite you to attend. Our meetings are a positive experience and allows you to become as involved as you are able.
Chapter 1 meetings are the 3rd Monday of each month. Our meeting place has changed to the Wadsworth Masons Lodge #25, located at 2425 Pyramid Way, Sparks, NV.
We hope to see you soon!
