A group of local business owners and community leaders recently donated $13,000 to pay for an Action Track Chair from the Outward Bound Project for donation to the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 391.
The chair was presented as part of a ceremony June 15 at the Veterans’ Memorial Hall in Sonora, CA.
Organized by Black Oak Casino Resort General Manager, Aaron Moss, the ceremony recognized local business owners and community leaders for their generous donations that contributed to the chair’s purchase.
“Our community may be small, but we are mighty in the support of our veterans,” Moss said in a press release. “I am proud to be a part of a community that comes together in such a big way for those who need it most, those who fought and sacrificed for us all.”
John Mendiola, vice president of Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 391 accepted the Action Track Chair on behalf of his chapter. The chair will be available to veterans in the chapter as needed. The Action Track Chair is an all-terrain wheelchair that allows users to have off-road access giving them the opportunity to hike, hunt, fish and more.
The Outward Bound Project was created in 2015 and is committed to donating Action Track Chairs to local veterans and veteran’s organizations. For information about the Outward Bound Project or to help the cause, call (209) 928-9384.
