Western National Day

August 25, 2016

August 25, 2016 declared Western National Day!

Over the years, Western National Insurance Group located in Edina has donated twelve vehicles to VEAP.  Since 2010, 70 VEAP volunteers provided nearly 28,000 rides with Western National donated vans, totaling 688,150 miles. Hundreds of low-income individuals accessed food and health care with the help of volunteers and Western National.

Celebrate with us!

Edina Mayor, Jim Hovland, will be onsite at Western National Insurance to declare Thursday, August 25

Western National Day.  At 2:30 p.m. VEAP volunteers and staff will cheer and greet the new van as it arrives in an exciting homecoming celebration.  Refreshments will follow in VEAP’s Community Room.


Arrive at VEAP by 2:15 p.m.

Check in with Kial or Amy in VEAP’s Volunteer Gathering area. Please wear your green VEAP t-shirt. If you don’t have one, let Kial know your size and we’ll have one ready for you.

As the new van arrives at VEAP around 2:30 p.m, cheer loudly and be a part of celebrating Western National’s commitment to reducing barriers to accessing healthy food and health care.
