WIS helps raise over $14k at veterans phone bank

Over $14k raised at WIS food bank

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - For some veterans in our community, making it to their appointments at the Dorn VA can be extremely difficult.

That’s why WIS teamed up with Disabled American Veterans on Monday to help them purchase a new van to transport veterans to the hospital for their treatment.

We want to say thank you to everyone who donated in our Year of the Veteran phone bank. WIS and Disabled American Veterans together with help from our viewers raised $14,942 during the phone bank.

While that’s just short of the goal, we’re told volunteers got a call as they were leaving so they’re hopeful they’ll reach the $15,000 goal by Tuesday.

The funds will help purchase a van to transport disabled veterans to and from their appointments at the VA.
