Our goal is to get veterans outdoors and trained to use sustainable solution this Spring. Ideally, our program will have three years of operational funds in place before we start.
25k first year start up and operational and green energy installation costs and insurance.
10k second year insurance and maintenance.
5k insurance operational costs and maintenance.
Self funded by year three.
The result will be veterans knowing how to make green fuel and electrical power to enjoy the outdoors for as long as they want to.
How you can help sponsor The Veterans Green Bus Core Operational Capabilities?
Our bus will be used to demonstrate sustainable energy solutions to fuel transportation and remote power generation for their camp.
We will use national park tours and community service projects to train for disaster responses.
The bus will be used forward operating base during these deployments.
Individuals, businesses and partnering nonprofit organizations can participate helping build on our core service operations and training programs through donations of money, time and I kind contributions.
