Masonic Care Community Receives Wheelchair Donation
The Masonic Care Community just received a donation that will help the community speed ahead.
Monroe Wheelchair aided by Townsquare Media, helped bring a donation of two motorized chairs to the Masonic Care Community. Together, the two new motorized wheelchairs will aid those at Masonic Care Community with mobility issues.
Masonic Care Community reports that one of the chairs has been given to a Korean War Vet. Now a double amputee living on campus, he says that the new chair was the best thing to ever happen to him.
He had been using an second hand chair that had a myriad of issues and he is a big man, so he needed a chair with some power! He loves to fish and with this chair is now able to go on his own out to the Acacia pond (weather permitting) he also participates in a variety of activities. His body is strong as is his intellect, he just doesn't have the ability to ambulate on his own.
