The Greece Rotary Club, with the assistance of the Ridge Road Fire Department and the Greece Lion’s Club, is collecting new and used mobility devices (crutches, walkers, canes, rollators and wheelchairs). They will be shipped to developing countries in Africa and distributed free-of-charge to people with physical mobility challenges, regardless of their race, gender, tribe, age, or religion. Some of the collected items will be distributed locally as well through the Lion’s Club. The collection project began on August 1st and runs through September 30th. Detailed information is included in the attached fliers.

Please bring your donated mobility devices to our collection point, the Ridge Road Fire Station, 1299 Long Pond Road, Rochester, NY 14626.  (It’s across the street from the old Sears store in the Greece Ridge Center.) There are signs to indicate where your donations should be placed.  On August 14 and September 18 there will even be people to unload your vehicle for you!

You can also help by distributing the attached flier and information to everyone you know, as well as to any and all organizations you can. If you can't print copies of the flier, please contact Helen or Bill to get some. Here is a link to a short 90 second video to help people better understand the urgent need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-NP64Xw7Y4.   

Thank you for all you are doing to support this project.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
