Hattie Larlham thanks supporters for successful Ready to Ride Flash Fund

Thank you to everyone who supported our 48-hour Flash Fund on Tues., Aug. 21 and Wed., Aug. 22. Together, we raised: $6,445

A special thank you to our anonymous donor who matched all Flash Fund donations dollar-for-dollar up to $2,400.

We’re Ready to Ride!

Thanks to your generosity we’re able to equip EVERY SINGLE ONE of our vans and buses with these new, safe, straps!

Flash Fund donations will be used to purchase new wheelchair straps for Hattie Larlham vehicles. Every day, Hattie Larlham residents and Constant Companions participants take daily trips into the community. They have unique travel needs and it is imperative that we have the proper safety equipment in each of vans and buses. Your generous donations will help us purchase new, updated wheelchair straps for each of our vehicles. These new self-tightening straps are easy to maintain and click when locked in place, ensuring a quick and safe tie-down every time.

Why we need new straps:

  • Excessive wear and tear –  Because Hattie Larlham vehicles are used daily to transport our residents and program participants to medical appointments and community activities, the wheelchair straps wear out quickly.
  • Problems securing the existing straps – The current chair straps are difficult to secure into place, do not indicate when they are locked, and often tangle. This leaves them out of commission for weeks and thus reduces the number of wheelchair-dependent people who can enjoy opportunities to get into the community.
