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.”

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.
