Volunteers needed for wheelchair refurbishing

If you are comfortable with tools, you like to tinker, solve problems, and work with your hands – then we have a volunteer opportunity for you.

Every year, Global Links receives hundreds of wheelchairs that are desperately needed by patients and individuals with limited mobility in Latin America and the Caribbean. Before they can be included in our donations overseas, however, they must be refurbished. Sometimes they just need a quick clean-up, and sometimes they are missing parts or need to be repaired – because we want to be sure that when they reach their new owner, they will have a long and useful life.

For more about this project, watch the video produced by Black and Gold City Goes Green, or click on this flyer. Fill out a volunteer application and get more information here: http://www.globallinks.org/get_involved/volunteer.php Volunteer sessions will be held on Fridays. Your efforts can provide mobility and improve the quality of life for individuals in resource-poor communities!
