There are many ways to thank a vet, but the Metro Detroit United States Bowling Congress and the Bowlers to Veterans Link have found an especially unique way to help out those who served their country through military service.
Two golf carts were donated to the Michigan Veteran Homes at Chesterfield Township by the non-profit. The bowling groups support veterans and active-duty service members through recreation therapy programs.
Tiffany Carr, community engagement coordinator for Michigan Veteran Homes said, “These golf carts will provide transportation for veteran members to enjoy the natural surroundings and observe a wide range of wildlife across 30 acres.”
Carr said, “We are so grateful for the BVL and Metro Detroit USBC as their generous donation enables our members to spend more time outdoors while celebrating camaraderie.”
The bowling charity started its work with veterans in 1942 when a women’s bowling association raised money to pay for medical transport planes that brought wounded soldiers from battlefields to American hospitals. They have been working with veterans for eighty years.
