Wheels Through Time is proud to announce that it will be partnering with The Home Depot Foundation this spring in a fundraising effort to help improve the homes and lives of United States veterans.
Our nation’s veterans made great sacrifices for the freedom we enjoy today. But they can face major challenges, from housing and unemployment to disabilities. The Home Depot Foundation’s mission is to ensure every veteran has a place to call a home, and now Wheels Through Time has joined the cause.
On April 17, 2014 Wheels Through Time Museum Founder and Curator, Dale Walksler will attend a Community Building Invitational hosted by The Home Depot Foundation. During this event, more than 250 volunteers from The Home Depot® and their vendor partners will collaborate to transform a permanent supportive housing facility for Atlanta area veterans.
While Dale will be on hand volunteering his time and skills, his largest contribution to the event comes in the form of a vintage military motorcycle specially restored by Walksler in the museum’s restoration shop, to be raffled off as a fundraiser. After obtaining two of the earliest motorcycles used by the United States Air Force, Dale spent months restoring a genuine 1942 Harley-Davidson Military Model in identical trim to the two former Air Force Machines found just months earlier. The machine will be unveiled during The Home Depot Foundation’s Community Building Invitational on April 17. READ MORE……..
