Truck Donation to Convalescent Aid Society of Pasadena
Date:10/24/2008

A generous gift from a local family foundation will help the Convalescent Aid Society (CAS) serve its clients all over the San Gabriel Valley for years to come. The foundation's gift of $35,000 has enabled CAS to purchase a brand new Isuzu truck, which will be put to good use delivering free medical equipment to clients and picking up donations of large equipment.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2008 -- A generous gift from a local family foundation will help the Convalescent Aid Society (CAS) serve its clients all over the San Gabriel Valley for years to come. The foundation's gift of $35,000 has enabled CAS to purchase a brand new Isuzu truck, which will be put to good use delivering medical equipment to clients and picking up donations of large equipment.

One of the areas the foundation particularly focuses on is aid to the elderly and disabled. And those are exactly the people that CAS serves. For more than 85 years, the Convalescent Aid Society has been providing medical equipment -- from wheelchairs to hospital beds -- to clients at absolutely no charge. Today, the organization serves close to 10,000 people across the San Gabriel Valley.

CAS Executive Director Randy Votsch noted that the organization's nine-year-old truck was long overdue for replacement, having logged 150,000 hard miles.

"The CAS truck makes about 10 pick-ups and deliveries a day, every day, from Monday through Friday, throughout the entire San Gabriel Valley. This gift is a real boon for us and our clients who need larger pieces of medical equipment, such as hospital beds, delivered to them," he said.

A CAS board member brought CAS's need for a new vehicle to the attention of the foundation and the foundation came through with a large gift that met that need and then some.

"This generous grant covered 100% of the cost of purchasing and painting the new truck with the CAS logo," Votsch said.

More information and photographs can be found in the Convalescent Aid Society website under Press Release.
