Captain David Bourne to Walk for “iPods for Wounded Veterans”

For a few years now, Teamsters Local 769 has been encouraging our members to support iPods for Wounded Veterans. Since 2014 our very own David Renshaw was named southern rep for the southeast United States for iPods for Wounded Veterans. The organization was founded by a Vietnam Veteran and a retired Teamster, and is currently working to provide iPods, iPads, eReaders and other materials to improve the quality of life for our wounded Veterans. They have also created a page that makes it easier than ever to get behind this great cause. http://ipodsforwoundedveterans.org/donate-online.html 

This May, Captain David Bourne of the Teamsters Airline Division will be taking on a new challenge. In order to raise money for our wounded servicemen and women, David will be walking across Scotland in support of iPods for Wounded Veterans, a group founded by Teamsters and joined by members of the DAV and VFW. On the 24th of May, David will leave from Port Glasgow and head across Scotland, finishing on June 7th in the city of Inverness. All funds raised will go to the iPods for Wounded Veterans charity.
