Colorado River Combat Vets Motorcycle Association® Donates to Veteran Causes
The Colorado River Chapter of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association® (CVMA® 32-7) continues to support local organizations that are committed to serving veterans and their families in the tri-state area. This month, thanks to the generous support of the community, CVMA® 32-7 distributed several donations to local charities.
The Chapter was pleased to present to Pat and Casey Farrell, representing the Jerry Ambrose Veterans Council, a check for $10,000. The JAVC continues its excellent work with Mohave County veterans, especially those who find themselves homeless.
After learning that the Las Vegas Fisher House provided lodging, food, and a kind hand to more than 1500 tri-state area veteran and military families with loved ones in the Las Vegas VA Hospital over the last few years, Chapter 32-7 rode to Las Vegas on October 13, 2021 to present Fisher House manager, Stephanie Jo Wheeler, a $3,000 donation.
On October 7th, several members paid a visit to the Veterans in Motion band practice at the Suddenlink Community Center, where Directors Bob and Nancy Dorn accepted 32-7's donation of $1,000. The Dorn's enthusiasm in helping veterans through music and dance is infectious. 32-7 is proud to be a part of the work they are doing in our community.
Chapter 32-7 was also a proud sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, providing $1,000 plus, many hours of organizational assistance for the arrival and support of The Wall That Heals.
Over the last couple of years CVMA® 32-7 and the Tri-State Military Moms have developed a cooperative relationship, collaborating on the needs of both active-duty men and women and veterans. The Chapter was encouraged to hear the outreach they continue to have in the community and was pleased to present them with a check for $500.
