Veterans Gift Drive

A Way to Give Back to Our Riders Who Were Veterans

At FIT, we believe in connected, cohesive communities that encourage healthy, happy lifestyles.  Through partnerships, advocacy and education, we believe in creating communities with inclusive transportation infrastructure, better mobility options and environmentally conscious commuters.

A Special Thank You From the TMACC Staff and Board of Directors and the Coastevilles VA

Once Again, We Thank You for this heartwarming tale of unconditional support, and gratitude!


The spirit of the holiday season was abundant alongside profound gratitude for the service of the men and women veterans of the Coatesville VA. Hundreds of gifts were once again delivered to the VA, shortly before Christmas.


The Transportation Management Association (TMACC), through the Foundation for the Improvement of Transportation (FIT), its members, partners, and local community members, were able to brighten the holidays for these brave men and women.

Past Gift Drive Photos

Since 2013, FIT has collected gifts for veterans in transition, patients of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and clients of the Veterans Multi-Service Center. We collect personal items and household gifts from the residents, employees and companies in Chester County until December. These gifts are then delivered by our public transit service, Coatesville Link, to the VA Medical Center.  

We hope to make 2020 our biggest gift delivery yet!  Last year FIT delivered over 1,500 gifts to the patients of the Coatesville Veterans Affairs Medical Center and to the Veterans in transition to new homes.  We are hoping to deliver over 2,000 gifts this year, but we need your help!  Below is a list of items we are looking to get from the community.  All items must be new and and to ease sorting and distributing at the VA they have asked that gifts be unwrapped.  


The last day to donate is November 23, 2020. Please call or email ahead to schedule a drop-off at our TMACC Office during the work week between 8:30 and 5:00 PM!


Our Veterans have supported us, now it's time to support them.  We hope you will help us this year!
