WHAT: A surprise donation of a power wheelchair will be made during a benefit event honoring 9/11 responder Kevin O'Connor.

Citing Mr. O'Connor's many contributions to our society, The SCOOTER Store in partnership with the FealGood Foundation, is helping the disabled officer with the donation of a Jazzy Scooter through The SCOOTER Store's Gift of Mobility program.
