Provides funding to honor hospitalized Veterans with parades and concerts, hosts picnics, fishing trips and furnishes tickets to sporting events throughout the year to remind the Veterans that they are not forgotten. Every Christmas, DD831 volunteers pack 1,000 boxes full of personal care products, puzzle books, gloves, snacks and candies, gift wrap and hand decorate the boxes for distribution to patients receiving care at the Coatesville, Lebanon, and Southeastern Veterans Centers.
DD831 has been fortunate to be able to respond to the various needs of a diverse population. This year DD831 purchased 2 AEDs to be placed in locations in Chester County to improve response time in the event of a cardiac arrest. DD831 purchased basketball nets for several parks in Coatesville, including a new basketball post, backboard, rim, and net for the Patton Park Basketball Project in Coatesville. DD831 is a proud sponsor of East Fallowfield Park Day, providing families an opportunity to attend a free carnival including rides and crafts that may not otherwise be afforded. DD831 purchased a playset that was installed on campus at the CVAMC; children visiting Veterans at the medical center will be able to enjoy the playset, enhancing the experience for both visitors and Veteran.
David’s Drive 831 is a 100% volunteer-based charity, holding fund raising events throughout the year, relying solely on the generous and caring contributions from the people and businesses in the community. DD831 will continue to fund and support projects that will help the people of Chester County most efficiently and effectively. Because we should.
