  1. I might be able to help with the driving request for women Veterans…what organization is involved and where is it located? I am in Fairport. You can reach me at 425-8721 or by emailing me.

  2. The person who wanted to know who can volunteer to drive to and pick up a woman veteran to medical appointments should call the Disabled American Veterans transportation service (DAV). Their number is (585) 463-2661. The coordinator’s name is Jeffery.

    1. I work for the NYS-OPWDD (New York State Office of People With Developmental Disabilities) Finger Lakes DDSO as an aide and work with activities in a group home. The Farfisa Organ would definitely get used by the clientele in our home as I am building up a collection of donated and low cost usuable instruments to use for activities and to assist with music therapy. I can be reached on my days off weekends easiest Friday, Saturday & Sunday during the day at my home at 374-8552. NO PROBLEM PICKING IT UP.
