The program is designed to help organizations provide freedom and independence to people in need. Although the company helps thousands with limited mobility in more than 30 states every year, there are thousands more who are not eligible for Medicare, are denied by their secondary insurance or are not financially stable. The current procedure for someone to receive either a power chair or scooter is similar to getting a prescription from a doctor. A potential recipient receives information in the mail and calls The Scooter Store to begin the process. The company has donated more than 75 power-operated vehicles nationwide. Recipients include American Red Cross in Kentucky, Salvation Army in Connecticut, Temporary Loan Closet in Florida, Hospice in Alabama, DAVID INGRAM/Herald-Zeitung Harvey Witkins and Chris Pfefferkom, front, test drive two scooters donated to the Comal County Senior Citizen Center by the Scooter Store Thursday. Shown with them are Gerry Webb, senior citizen center director; Agnes Stratton; and Kristy Jonas, public relations director for The Scooter Store. United Way in Arkansas as well as churches, museums and foundations. Donations for Tfexas include Project Mend in San Antonio, Museum for The Boy Scouts of America in Dallas and MD Anderson in Houston. New Braunfels dona tions include The American Legion Post 179 and the Comal County Senior Citizens Foundation. Donations are pending for the Community Services Center, Warm Springs Rehabilitation Center, Eden Home and Hope Hospice of New Braunfels. Twenty units are available for donation in the New Braunfels area. These units are gently used and are out of warranty. The receiving organizations understand any repairs are at the recipient’s cost. Distribution managers and staff are working diligently to ensure these units are clean, sanitized, fully charged, and ready for donation. The Scooter Store was founded by Doug and Susanna Harrison in 1991. What started as an idea of weekend van and scooter rental more than ll years ago, has grown into the nation’s largest provider of power chairs and scooters. Kristy Jonas from the Public Relations Department explains, “Compassion and integrity is in everything we do. Doing the right thing is one of our most important company values, and this is one way for us to give back to the communities we serve every day.” Organizations interested in receiving a donation should call 1-800-723-4535 and ask for the Public Relations Department.
