Sid Dillon Lincoln donates Jazzy Power Chair to VFW 3606 in Lincoln
Recently Sid Dillon in Lincoln received a Jazzy Power Chair and we decided to donate the chair to help someone in need this holiday season. The chair was taken in a Nissan Frontier to the Miller-Long Post on West A street in Lincoln by our IT Business Director Jonathan Clark, Service Manager Nate Salmon and Technician Daniel Bazan.
When Earl Motschenbacher, the Commander of the Miller-Long Post 3606 got the call from Sid Dillon about the opportunity to receive the chair, he was very gracious. “I was very excited when they told me they were donating it. I was surprised someone would do this from outside of the VFW. It shows how gracious Sid Dillon is.”
Motschenbacher continued to talk about how beneficial the chair will be to not only the veterans who come in, but to their families and friends. “I know we have a lot of vets with different injuries, if this can help those people move around more freely, it makes me happy. When the other veterans come out and see it, they were shocked it was donated from someone on the outside.”
Motschenbacher also talked about what this donation will mean for the future. “Right now it’s ready to be used. It’s for the use of the people who come in,” he said. “When we are open on weekends, we are just going to have it available to everyone, veteran or not to use it. The west Lincoln community has really embraced the VFW since we moved here and have rented our club a lot and the chair will help many people. “I’m really happy we can use it and others will be to.”
We were very pleased to donate the Jazzy Power Chair to someone in need, and with the chair being at the Miller-Long Post 3606 in Lincoln, it will be used by many veterans who served our great country. We also added a few more pictures to the Jazzy Power Chair Donation Album, about the event if you would like to view more photos.
