WHAT: The SCOOTER Store executives deliver donation of power wheelchair to local resident, David Harrison, who was injured in a car accident.
The SCOOTER Store recently learned that Mr. Harrison, who suffers from permanent brain damage and is unable to walk, has worn out his second borrowed power wheelchair from delivering mail at the facility. Mr. Harrison is known by staff as a "sweetheart with a sweet tooth" who volunteers as a judge for employee bake-offs and delivers mail. His volunteer work earned him the "Volunteer of the Year" award from the Texas Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.
To keep him on the go, The SCOOTER Store is giving Mr. Harrison a power chair as part of its "Gift of Mobility" program. Eden Home is one of several local long-term facilities serviced by The SCOOTER Store.
The SCOOTER Store, the nation's leading provider of power wheelchairs and scooters, created a Gift of Mobility program in December 2002. Since its inception, the outreach program has donated more than $200,000 a year in power wheelchairs, scooters and manual wheelchairs to community service organizations, enabling them to provide freedom, independence and personal dignity to individuals with limited mobility.
