MN5000 collects used wheelchairs to be restored and provided to individuals in less resources countries, like Cuba, as pictured above.
What is the MN5000 Campaign?
If you could change the life of a person with a disability, who is isolated and overlooked, would you? We at Joni and Friends Minnesota invite you to join us. You can help provide a wheelchair to someone struggling with disability in a less resourced country. These people are excluded from life in the outside world because they have no way of moving around. With a wheelchair, they can attend school and church and become part of their communities and villages.
Thousands of wheelchairs are thrown away each year in the United States. You can make a difference by donating a used manual wheelchair or seeking out used wheelchair donations in your community. Give new life to wheelchairs that would otherwise be discarded.
All wheelchairs donated to the MN5000 Campaign will be refurbished to like-new condition and will be individually fit to recipients by a skilled physical therapist and wheelchair mechanic.
