Take a Ride in Checker Cabs to Help Veterans

Veteran Transportation Program

Thanks to a partnership with AMR, Jim Ellis Auto Group and Checker Cab, the Safe America Foundation is launching a program to help veterans get to the VA Hospital and regional clinics. Called ‘Vet Tran,’ it will seek to transport 100 veterans a week to medical care. And, Checker Cab will invite its cab riders to ‘round up’ their fares to provide funds to subsidize veteran transportation.

Safe America will also expand its ‘Welcome Home, Heroes’ veterans program to offer more medical care to solve PTSD and a pet dog to minimize depression. All of this will be announced May 18 at SunTrust Park as we salute Checker Cab’s President Rick Hewatt (left) together with Safe America CEO Len Pagano.

Here’s to partners MillerCoors, AMR, Jim Ellis Auto Group, Lockheed Martin and Primerica for helping Safe America offer transportation to get veterans to medical care. Donate online at VETV.US to help us transport veterans.
