The road goes on forever - and the party never ends! Ain’t it the truth! Translates into over 20,000 wheelchairs compadres - not too slouchy… I made an attempt to add up the countries where Hope Haven West has visited. Rough numbers - Eighteen (and counting) - we expect to add an additional four this next year (assuming the planets line up).
Hope Haven West celebrates the arrival of 600 Hope Haven Kids Chairs (500 requiring assembly) at our warehouse at 1628 Nadine Avenue in Modesto. This is way ahead of schedule...
If you are interested in volunteering with refurbishing and/or assembly of pediatric rehab wheelchairs for disabled kids - this is the place to be (no experience required - on site instruction available).
Nicholas Mascitelli is the man running the show - his email is email@example.com - don’t give up - pound on his palace timbers until your email is added to his enchanted list. Sometimes these mass emails are directed to spam by your filter - check there before you beat him up too bad. A great experience of camaraderie and “Service Above Self” awaits…
The Big One
December 1st - mark your calendars - Hope Haven West will be hosting it’s annual Winter Extravaganza. Dinner, music, stories (some of them true) at the magic warehouse - 1628 Nadine Avenue. So classy, we considered making it formal (Lisa says No - OK - but a nice evening for sure).
RSVP - not all our volunteers are socially literate - that means we need to hear from you regarding your plans to attend, allowing us to plan with the caterer and calibrate the sound system. Plan to cap it at 100 - sooooo - don’t dawdle - Get ‘er Done!
Scheduled to receive 2000 unassembled Hope Haven Kids chairs by the first of the year. This is a big deal (for us anyway) - price tag on that is $600,000 (excluding shipping). At under $300.00 a chair (comparable retail product is over $2000.00 each) a super bargain and small price to pay for extending and enhancing a kids life!
Our plan is (unapologetically) to shake you down at the Winter Extravaganza - but, don’t let that be a hinderance to indulge the immediate impulse to send a check or donate online.
Make checks payable to “Hope Haven West” - mail to: 1878 E. Hatch Road, Modesto, California 95351.
hopehavenwest.com For online giving and expanding your awareness of the incredible work being done by Hope Haven West volunteers.
Many thanks to all our partners and volunteers assisting in making the gift of mobility a reality for so many of “The Least of These”.
Waging Heavy Peace,
Hope Haven West
