Every year I take donations of motorized wheelchairs,refurbish them and give them away to the handicapped who can't afford them. I call it the "Gift of Mobility Giveaway". I do this yearly right before Christmas.This will be my 7th year and to date I have given away almost 300 motorized chairs.These chairs change the lives of the handicapped that so desperately need them.This event has gotten so large that I can no longer afford to do it alone.I have at least 50 chairs now that need refurbishing and will be getting many more before the holiday season.Just the batteries alone cost as much as $350.00 per chair,that along with storing them,mechanics fees,transportation etc is very costly.With your help I will be able to give away at least 60 motorized chairs this holiday season,maybe more.If you go to youtube type in AZ Pawn Gift of mobility and you will get a glimpse of the last 5 years giveaways.You can help change the lives of the many who fall thru the cracks and just don't qualify for a much needed motorized chair.Anyone that has an unwanted chair that they would like to donate, Contact Phil for pickup,or just drop them off at 442 East main st Norwich Ct 06360   Thankyou   help me keep this tradition going!
