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.
We are thrilled to host a blog from Rebecca Sorrell who is currently working in Uganda for Show Mercy International. She contacted Crutches 4 Kids last month about Justine's need for a new pair of crutches and we sent a pair along with her sister-in-law Kelli who was traveling there soon thereafter. We are grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of helping Justine live a more fulfilling life. (Click to read her story)
