DAV purchases new van for VA Clinic rides
The Veteran’s Assistance Commission of Macon County provides veterans with FREE transportation to the Danville VA Clinic Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week. To arrange a ride a veteran needs to call the VAC office at 217-424-1376. Veterans volunteer to drive the van. Currently the driver with most seniority is Charles Loury with 14 years and more than 59,000 miles! There is a team of six drivers currently for Macon County. Our Macon County team also currently picks up in Champaign as well.
