Burns, along with Matt Swope, BraunAbility Director of Sales Eastern United States, and Chris Paczak, MobilityWorks Vice President of Marketing, had the proud honor of presenting this assisted mobility van to Retired Navy Veteran Charlie Johnson and his wife and caregiver, Lola Johnson, of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, at the NAAV Corporate Office located at 1725 I Street NW, in Washington, D.C.

The two organizations, BraunAbility of Winamac, Indiana, and MobilityWorks, worked in conjunction with NAAV as a momentous opportunity to present the Johnsons with a much-needed mobility assisted minivan. The MobilityWorks Foundation was the major sponsor of this donation.
