Disabled American Veterans, which takes veterans to clinic appointments and the Syracuse Veterans Affairs Medical Center, is fundraising to pay for four replacement vehicles for its fleet of 30.
The nonprofit organization is looking to raise $60,000. For every $14,500, the DAV can purchase a van. A network of more than 200 volunteers drives routes that include Watertown, Potsdam, Ogdensburg, Star Lake and Massena.
