    Hello, I have a Scuba BCD (women’s medium) (excellent condition) that I would like to donate to a “Discovery Scuba For Veterans” group in my area. I’m located in the Lansdale /Allentown / Horsham area of Pennsylvania. Please let me know if there is anyone I can contact. I know that a few years back a dive group I was associated with did work with a Veterans Group, but I’m pretty sure that they don’t any more. Thank you for any assistance or direction you can give me.

    Best regards,
    Yvonne Paci Ciquero
