Toyota & Braun Donate Wheelchair-Accessible Vehicle to Paralyzed Veterans of America

Braun-toyota-entervan If you needed some holiday spirit, look no further than this story.  Toyota Motor Sales USA and the Braun Corporation, the world’s largest manufacturer of wheelchair-accessible vans and wheelchair lifts, recently announced that they would be donating a 2011 Toyota Sienna with a BraunAbility Rampvan® XT conversion, to the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA).  The Sienna Rampvan will serve as one of the primary transport vehicles for members of the PVA’s national headquarters in Washington, D.C.



“Toyota Motor Sales has had a long relationship with the Paralyzed Veterans of America and has been a contributing sponsor of the PVA’s annual wheelchair games since 2004, which showcases paralyzed veterans competing in Olympic style events. Today’s vehicle donation marks the second time Toyota has donated a wheelchair accessible converted Sienna to the PVA and we are honored to be able to support the brave men and women who have served our country” said Mark Oldenburg, Toyota’s National Fleet Marketing and Mobility Manager.

“BraunAbility takes great pleasure in donating the 2011 Toyota Sienna Rampvan® XT to the Paralyzed Veterans of America,” said Kiser. “The PVA’s commitment to maximizing its members’ quality of life parallels BraunAbility’s passion for increasing personal mobility for physically disabled Americans, especially our disabled veterans, across the country.”

These converted Rampvans offer mobility to wheelchair users, either as the driver, front seat passenger, or second row passenger. The vehicle features a lowered floor which provides a 56” high door opening, an automatic door and side-entry ramp, and four wheelchair securement positions.  Not only that - but the Toyota dealership in Alexandria will keep the vehicle serviced free of charge.  Toyota and Braun, AskPatty salutes you.  Thank you for this donation, and for your continued commitment to not only the Paralyzed Veterans of America, but to disabled persons worldwide.
