MAKING A DIFFERENCE


A wheelchair, being used to make a memory.............Taking a trip to Waldameer - not a big deal, right? (For those of you not from the Erie area, Waldameer is a local amusement park.) It IS a big deal when you have trouble walking. Getting from the parking lot into the park can be a painful if not impossible experience. Recently, a friend of the ministry stopped in to borrow a wheelchair for a relative who wanted to spend the day at the park as part of a family gathering.... Fortunately, we had one available to loan him. When he brought it back, he shared with us what a blessing it had been to be able to use it, as it enabled his family to spend the day together. Remember, the medical equipment you have that may be gathering dust in your home may be just what someone needs to make a memory that will last a lifetime :) We are praying for the day when we don't have to tell a neighbor, "I am sorry, we don't have that item available right now". Help us get closer to that goal by donating your extra medical equipment, and letting others know about the needs in our community! #medicalequipmentmemorymaking #familygatherings #identityprotection

Local Ministry - Home Health Care

Testimonial:

"This is a small donation to thank you for providing a lift chair for my mom many months ago.  She couldn't have afforded it on her own since her insurance didn't cover its expense.  It's made a big difference for her. The old chair she had was very low and it was getting way too difficult for her to get up.

Thank you again! God bless you for all your good works. Peace and prayers to you all - Rosanna

Meeting the needs of our neighbors...
