Donate your gently-used equipment!
A single piece of equipment changes a recipient’s life, giving them the independence to find work, contribute to their families’ lives, go to school, or simply move around. Without this option, many of these people just sit at home and stare at the wall. Unfortunately, insurance often turns down requests for manual and power chairs–or takes so long to grant them that the person (too-common in ALS cases) dies before experiencing the dignity and freedom given by a chair.
Make a Charitable Donation
A single piece of equipment has the ability to not only change the life of the person with the disability, but his/her family members as well, as evidenced through the thank you letters received from clients that receive the equipment.
Life does not end with the onset of a disability, but the quality of life can be severely limited without the tools of independence. LIFE exists to help level the playing field for people with disabilities in order to create a world in which everyone can fully participate! With access and opportunity, disability can be reduced to a mere nuisance.
Last year, we served 148 individuals in need. The end of 2016 we helped 238 residents of our community. A record number!!!!
Donating just a $1 will help us keep up with the growing need for mobility equipment in our community, providing a better quality of life to those who have nowhere else to turn.
