Have you ever thought about getting involved in your community, but aren’t sure how? Do you want to make a direct, lasting impact on the lives of those in need? Do you have colleagues, family and friends who feel the same? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Crutches 4 Kids needs your help.
Crutches 4 Kids is a non-profit organization that harnesses the power of community and the culture of sustainability to raise awareness, stimulate action and make a direct impact on the lives of millions of disabled children across the globe. To put our mission simply, a pair of crutches can transform a life.
Crutches 4 Kids works directly with community members and organizations to make our mission a reality. We collect gently used crutches through sustainable recycling programs and community and school crutch drives. Once collected, our humanitarian organization partners, such as MedShare and Americares, distribute the crutches to places in need. We have built a strong community of passionate citizens around this cause and are eager to continue to grow and expand our reach.
To date, Crutches 4 Kids has collected more than 7,000 crutches that have been collected in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey and distributed to over two dozen countries including Guatemala, Haiti, Ghana and the Philippines. However, relative to the tens of millions of children who are still waiting in need and the millions of crutches still sitting in storage, we have barely scratched the surface.
In order to accomplish our goals, we need a helping hand from you and your community.
Host a week-long crutch drive in your workplace, health clinic, community center or school. Our crutch drive toolkit will provide you all of the resources you need to plan and implement a drive, and the crutches you collect will go directly to children in need all over the world. It’s simple. Contact us now to get started!
