In July 2018, Four of our members coordinated the statewide collection of mobility devices from across CT. These and more were loaded onto a truck and shipped to California for refurbishing:
- 387 Wheelchairs
- 550 Walkers
- 635 Pairs of Crutches
- 180 Canes
Thru October 2018, our church helped collect over 300 wheelchairs, and by 12/31 we are hoping to exceed our 2017 collection of 385 chairs! A collection site has been set up at the Cromwell Municipal Recycling Center on Shunpike Road.
We have also added to the ranks of CT Chair Corps volunteers. We now have 10 members across the state. We have other volunteers when large projects arise, like the truck loading for the above transport or the annual WIHS wheelchair drive.
