Crutches 4 Kids is planning its inaugural city-wide crutch drive May 12-18th with numerous drop-off locations in all five boroughs, as well as select locations in NY, NJ and CT. With your support, we aim to collect as many gently-used crutches as possible. We are very grateful for all the volunteers, collection site partners and sponsors that are coming together to make this event a reality. A special shout out to our crutch drive sponsors: the Hospital for Special Surgery, MedShare, and UBER, for their commitment to helping us raise awareness, stimulate action, and make a direct impact on the lives of disabled children across the globe.
