All possible through Free Wheelchair Mission - and YOU! Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM) is a humanitarian, faith- based nonprofit that designs and manufactures cost- efficient, durable wheelchairs for individuals living with a disability in under-resourced nations.
In collaboration with a network of like-minded partners, Free Wheelchair Mission has distributed more than one million wheelchairs to individuals in
need in 93 countries around the world, providing renewed dignity, independence, and hope through the gift of mobility, at no cost to the recipient.
Those partners now include Grace Presbyterian, which will join with our brothers and sisters in Christ at 1 st Presbyterian-Midland for an annual fundraising effort benefiting FWM - an effort where 1=4!
No, it’s not new math … it’s love math. Your tax-deductible contribution during our March 2020 fundraiser will go into 1 st Presbyterian’s dedicated FWM account, and will be counted – and matched locally! - in the fall, when they hold their fundraiser. All of that will then go to FWM – and matched again! - at the national level. One FWM wheelchair costs $80. After it’s matched locally, then nationally, that $80 becomes $320!
So, 1 does = 4!
Please give thoughtful, prayerful consideration to contributing what you can to our FWM fundraiser in March. For more information, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jeff McDonald or Judia Foreman.
