Scooter donation provides boost for Warren County veteran

WASHINGTON, NJ (Warren County) – Veteran Richard Pixleys’ life recently became a little easier when he was presented with a motorized scooter.

Last week, Washington Township police officers responded to a residence in Washington for a medical call pertaining to a veteran, police said.

While speaking with the veteran and his family, it was learned that they were in possession of a “like new” mobility scooter and wanted their help in donating it to another veteran, police said.

Sgt. Wildrick had the perfect idea!

With the help of Officer Summers, the two loaded up the scooter and brought it to the Washington Township Department of Public Works where the “like new” scooter received some “tender loving care,” police said.

Once the scooter was ready to go, the officer’s donated the scooter to Pixley, police said.
