2021 PVA Corporate Patriot Award
In May 2021, the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) announced United Access and the Karyn and Richard May Foundation as the recipients of the 2021 PVA Corporate Patriot Award.
The PVA Corporate Patriot Award recognizes a donor’s significant contribution toward furthering the goals and mission of PVA and its chapters/regions through financial support and resource commitment over the past five years. United Access was nominated by the ST. Louis PVA Gateway Chapter.
“United Access and the Karyn and Richard May Foundation’s generosity have significantly enhanced our ability to carry out our mission to support deserving veterans with spinal cord injuries or diseases,” said Stanley D. Brown, national director and president, PVA Gateway Chapter. “Their support has enabled us to provide grants for accessible vehicles and housing, as well as sponsor recreational events that help veterans live life to the fullest.”
United Access has supported various PVA events and programs, from golf tournaments to the St. Louis VA Local Wheelchair Games, for the past 20 years. Additionally, in 2017 the newly formed Karyn and Richard May Foundation made a gift of $20,000 to the PVA Gateway Chapter.
