Grand Veterans receives grant from Pollination Project
Ryan Summerlin July 10, 2014
TABERNASH – The Pollination Project, a nonprofit organization that gives $1000 a day, every day, to individual change-makers and activists, awarded a grant to local resident Donald Scott, creator/founder of Grand Veterans.
Grand Veterans’ mission to honor, serve, and support Grand county’s veterans includes a 100 percent volunteer program that offers transportation from the county’s rural communities to VA hospitals and medical clinics in Denver and Golden.
“We are extremely grateful to The Pollination Project for the award and its validation of our program and impact in our communities.” said Scott. “A trip to the VA can be so much more than a ride to an appointment; it can be a therapy session, a chance for our Veterans to talk about their accomplishments, express their challenges, appreciate the surrounding beauty, and reflect on their service to our country. Grand Veterans views these trips as missions, and not just rides to appointments.”
