Western National Announces the Second Year of Driving Away Hunger
(Minneapolis, Minn.) Western National Insurance Group today announced its continued commitment to supporting Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People (VEAP) by donating a new 2013 Dodge Caravan as part of the Driving Away Hunger program. This vehicle will help build the nonprofit’s capacity for transportation services.
Driving Away Hunger vehicles are used for a variety of purposes, including providing transportation to and from VEAP’s food shelf and providing rides to limited-income seniors and individuals with disabilities who are unable to transport themselves to medical appointments, grocery shopping trips, and visits to hospitals or nursing homes.
VEAP staff accepted the second Driving Away Hunger donation yesterday afternoon at Western National’s office, together with monies and food shelf items raised from employees over the last few weeks.
“We’re happy to continue our support for VEAP and the many great social services they provide to those in need,” said Stuart Henderson, president and chief executive officer of Western National Insurance Group. “Our Driving Away Hunger program has proven to be a great way to assist VEAP as they reach out to the residents of the communities where we work and live. We look forward to continuing this support in the years ahead.”
