Volunteer Drivers Needed

Over 20 years ago, Congress cut funding for the VA’s Beneficiary Travel program. It was the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) who stepped up to fill this need.

Successful candidates  must: Pass a minor physical, undergo a background check, complete a VA Volunteer application, have a valid driver’s license and have no DUIs or DWIs. This process will all be done though the Syracuse VA Medical Center.Please call the DAV HSC at 315-425-4353 or DAV Driver Recruiter at 315-425-4343, or stop by the Syracuse VA Medical Center, Room A174 and find out how you can help!

Music for the Mission

11/4

Music for the Mission is a non profit organization formed by Joe Stanley of Joe Stanley Law and his team 4 years ago. They partner with and support organizations such as the Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, ARISE, Urban Mission and more.

People have lost their homes. They’ve lost their jobs, their livelihoods, their dignity. Look at the person sitting next to you. This person is educated, bright, maybe lives in the suburbs, supports a family of four.One misstep and your neighbor could be reaching out to The Mission next month for help. There are many wonderful causes and charities you and your business can donate to. Today we ask you to consider helping to fulfill the most basic of human needs: food and shelter.

 

“We’ll keep fighting and doing everything we can to get this man what he rightfully deserves… his own identity!” says Joe Stanley. “There are countless stories I’ve learned and I’ve worked to help make right or make some measure of difference over the years. We have to put a face on the homeless and the hungry. It’s not just happening to ‘that guy or that bum’. Many of these people had productive lives, families, homes. A loss of a job, a bad divorce, the loss of a spouse, there are so many reasons why this happens to someone. No one is immune! You just can’t sit back and think ‘it’ll never happen to me’.

 

Let’s fight this together because that is the only way we will win this battle!
