Our Wheelchair Project having one of its best years ever

June 6, 2012

For a while it was looking like we’d close up our wheelchair project because of a lack of donations.  However, this year we’ve had an unusually large amount of chairs donated that are being matched to help needy recipients.  Wheelchair Project is having best year. So far in 2012 we have had 59 donations and have matched 52 of them.  We project 127 matches for the year.
