Wheelchair Program

Since 2003, the Rotary Club of Springdale has partnered with the American Wheelchair Mission to help bring mobility to the world. The American Wheelchair Mission is a non-profit organization with a goal to deliver brand new, free wheelchairs and mobility aids to physically disabled children, teens and adults throughout the world who are without mobility or the means to acquire a wheelchair. The American Wheelchair Mission will continue to change the lives of entire families with the gifts of hope, dignity, freedom and independence.

Springdale Rotarians conduct an annual campaign to help raise money for the American Wheelchair Mission. Each chair costs $150.00. The club estimates one wheelchair affects the lives of more than 10 people who support the mobility-challenged individual. The club has donated more than 10,000 chairs, and by getting other clubs in Rotary District 6110 involved, together they have provided more than 13,500 wheelchairs. Each year club members, at their own expense, help delivery chairs to people in a city or area in Mexico.
