DAV’s Disaster Relief Team has been boots on the ground providing aide during the notable volcanoes in Hawaii, the historic California wildfires, and most recently in the Carolinas following Hurricane Florence. Now, veterans in the wake of Hurricane Michael need our help too. With the significant number of veterans and their families in dire need of assistance, our funds have been depleted. We need your support to ensure that we can help every disabled veteran that turns to us for assistance. A gift of any amount today will ensure our team can continue providing support for veterans experiencing coping with the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.
Volunteering through DAV is a wonderful way Americans help keep our nation’s promise to our veterans. DAV provides numerous opportunities for citizens to participate in volunteer programs in their own communities that address a wide range of veteran needs. DAV volunteers at VA hospitals, nursing homes and clinics perform many important services that bring comfort, care and companionship to grateful patients. Volunteers are essential to DAV’s vital medical transportation service. Using our national fleet of vehicles, volunteer drivers take veterans to and from medical appointments for free. No matter how you’d like to volunteer, DAV can help you return a measure of service to veterans who served us all.
Sometimes it takes more than bravery and courage to get the care and benefits veterans deserve. By making a monthly gift, you become a member of the DAV Honor Guard, a group of special individuals dedicated to empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.
DAV fights for veterans’ rights and benefits—promoting policies that ensure veterans and their families can live with respect and dignity. With a legacy of service dating back to 1920, DAV has a track record of being an influential advocate and inclusive voice for veterans of every era and conflict. You can add your voice to the more than 1 million members in nearly 1,300 local chapters nationwide. When DAV leaders testify before Congress, policymakers listen, and it’s because of our members—a voice that policymakers cannot ignore. The louder our voice, the stronger our presence. Stand with your fellow veterans and ensure our rights are protected, now and in the future.
Help the brave men and women who have served by donating any car, truck, RV or boat—in any condition and from any location—and get a tax deduction at the same time! It’s quick, easy and a great way to get rid of an old or extra vehicle. Turn your vehicle into resources that help ensure our nation’s heroes have the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms their sacrifices have made possible. We accept all vehicles—cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, airplanes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, etc.—whether they’re running or not. With more than 3,500 tow companies at our disposal, we can provide free pick-up anywhere in the country. You are entitled to receive a tax deduction equal to what the vehicle is sold for if you itemize your deductions. If the vehicle is sold for less than $500, you can deduct the fair market value up to $500. You will receive a tax receipt stating what your vehicle sold for within a few days of the sale. We convert the car into cash, which becomes a welcome donation to DAV
Golden Corral locations nationwide will offer military members and veterans a free “thank you” buffet and beverage during the company’s 18th annual Military Appreciation Night on Monday, Nov. 12, from 5 to 9 p.m. Last year, Golden Corral and its guests raised more than $1.4 million for DAV during the event, which honors our nation’s heroes, past and present. The 2017 iteration was the eighth straight year Golden Corral restaurants and their guests raised over $1 million to help veterans through DAV’s programs and\nservices. To date, Golden Corral restaurants have provided over 5.3 million free meals and contributed over $14.3 million to DAV chapters and departments.
For most veterans, finding a good job after military service is critical to making a successful return to civilian life and being able to support themselves and their families. DAV is committed to giving veterans every advantage as they look for meaningful employment. With our partners, RecruitMilitary and Veteran Recruiting we sponsor career fairs to introduce veterans and their spouses directly to employers seeking the unique talents of veterans. We also connect veterans to job training and job assistance programs to help them be as marketable as possible. Getting veterans back to work is one of the most important ways DAV is giving back to the men and women who served.
