    What: Wheelchair Distribution for Local Disabled Veterans
    The Port of Hueneme, in collaboration with 12 other organizations, will be sponsoring and hosting a wheelchair distribution for veterans in need. These wheelchairs are part of a larger effort coordinated by Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, Disabled American Veterans – Ventura Chapter 24, Knights of Columbus, and other organizations in Ventura County. In total, over a dozen groups raised nearly $33,000 to purchase this new shipment of wheelchairs. For more information, or to request a wheelchair, contact Gold Coast Veterans Foundation (805) 482-6550.

    Local disabled veterans will be receiving 40 wheelchairs at this event; part of 110 total wheelchairs acquired through organization collaborations and donations. Press encouraged to attend at 11:00 am.

    The Port of Hueneme is one of the most productive and efficient commercial trade gateways for niche cargo on the West Coast. The Port is governed by five locally elected Port Commissioners. The Port moves $10.85 billion in goods each year and consistently ranks among the top ten U.S. ports for automobiles and fresh produce. Port operations support the community by bringing $1.7 billion in economic activity and creating 15,834 trade-related jobs. Trade through the Port of Hueneme generates more than $119 million in direct and related state and local taxes, which fund vital community services. In 2017, the Port of Hueneme became the first port in California to become Green Marine certified.
