In North Carolina there are many groups, organizations, foundations and events that exist to support the wheelchair community, and at Van Products, we are both excited and humbled to be a part of that community. People throughout North Carolina need wheelchair accessible vans, whether they have been immobilized in a wheelchair since birth, lost their mobility in an accident, or are only temporarily handicapped during physical rehabilitation. Because we value the opportunity to offer these people and groups the chance to keep their lives moving, we also want to keep up with the causes and organizations they value by being involved.
Van Products supports groups that work to promote awareness and raise funding for diseases like cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. We also coordinate with local athletic teams like the Durham Bulls and the Carolina Hurricanes to provide tickets and handicap parking passes to people who need wheelchair accessibility. We value our relationships with the disabled veterans in North Carolina as well as the North Carolina Handicapped Sportsman group and the Ms Wheelchair USA competition, which was won most recently by Ms Wheelchair North Carolina!
The families and friends who come alongside those valued members of our wheelchair community are also champions in our eyes; loving, supporting and encouraging those who are physically handicapped and helping to keep them moving. The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed 20 years ago, and we are thrilled to see the changes that have occurred in that time, both in understanding and awareness of the challenges of being in a wheelchair, but also in the changes that have occurred to make the world more wheelchair accessible.
Our part is to provide wheelchair accessible vans and keep the world handicap accessible through transportation, as well as to support other groups within this community.
