Donated van does good for veterans

When Peter Kovach’s wife, Monica, was diagnosed with rapid early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, he knew she would no longer be able to drive the family van. Because the van holds treasured family moments of taking their daughter to school, horseback riding and music lessons, Peter wanted to donate their vehicle to support a worthy cause rather than sell it.

“Both of us have many relatives in the military,” he said. “The members of [our] military risk their lives for everyone in the USA. To give something back is the least we can do.”
