Pohanka Gives Wheelchair Accessible Van to Family In Need

Local Salisbury resident Denny Mogan was formally diagnosed with ALS in early March. This progressive disease affects the nervous system and all types of muscle control including the ability to breathe, speak, swallow, and walk. Though Mogan is already facing mobility issues his wife has a deep desire for him to travel this summer and spend time with their two young sons. Pohanka of Salisbury’s Owner/Operator Sandy Angello heard about the family’s struggles when they reached out to local friends and family asking for help to find a wheelchair accessible van.

True to Pohanka’s giving nature the automotive team had a handicap lift installed into a conversion van available on-site. A few designated Pohanka employees brought the now wheelchair accessible van to the family’s home and presented them with the vehicle free of charge. Angello and the rest of the Pohanka team will also be assisting the Mogan family in establishing a non-profit in Denny Mogan’s name to help local families facing illness and hardship for years to come.

“I am so thankful to have been part of this,” Says William Toadvine, Sales Manager at Pohanka of Salisbury. “This man has tremendous courage and is so brave. This van will allow him to make some great memories with his children.”

Pohanka of Salisbury has made serving the community a prime goal of their organization since establishing the Pohanka Pays It Forward initiative in 2009. Since its founding, Pohanka of Salisbury has donated over $3,000,000.00 to more than 750 charitable organizations. It is Pohanka’s belief that nothing is more important than giving back to the community that we all work, live, and raise our families in and they are grateful to be assisting their local community in this time of need.

Future Downtown Plaza Brings Light to the City of Salisbury  

Salisbury Maryland is a small city located on the Eastern Shore and most widely known for its award-winning university and close proximity to the beach. For many years now local officials have been working tirelessly to build this city to its full potential and make it an exciting and homey location for citizens to grow their families and bring new businesses to the Delmarva Peninsula. 

The evolution of this small city has been extensive by implementing the well-known Third Friday event where once a month local vendors and artisans set up booths with trinkets and treats for sale. There is often live music, food trucks and entertainment the whole family can enjoy. Salisbury has also hosted the National Folk Festival for the past two years bringing music lovers from all over the nation to the small city. 

The next step in the bettering the area is creating a newly renovated downtown plaza in the heart of Downtown Salisbury. The project will essentially be giving a facelift to the city with new sidewalks, streetlamps, and landscaping as well as allowing local businesses and residents to run high-speed internet lines.

Though the finished product is to be a beautiful new downtown area, the lengthy construction has caused problems for local business owners, some of which have decided to relocate their businesses in order to avoid the hassle of dealing with the construction.

Other local businesses, however, are please and very much excited about all the changes coming to the area. Nicole Rogers, manager of Angello’s Scoops located on E Main Street, thinks the city has great potential and looks forward to the changes that will make downtown a family destination. “It’s difficult to deal with right now but the end result is a newer, better city to raise our families and grow our business in. Who wouldn’t want that?”

Rogers and the rest of the Angello’s team are excited for all the changes coming to the area and look forward to the conclusion of the construction which is expected to end in late 2020.
