Recently the Goodwill in Miami, FL launched a nationwide effort among Goodwill organizations to assist Haitian earthquake victims.
The GOOD NEWS? Through a partnership with the Foundation for Rehabilitation Equipment and Endowment (FREE) Goodwill Industries of the Valleys is able to support this effort. The first Goodwill organization to send equipment to Miami, our Goodwill and FREE are sending approximately $40,000 worth of mobility related, rehabilitation equipment, including crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs. Items are expected to ship to Miami, for distribution to Haiti, in the next week.
Since 2004 Goodwill and FREE have partnered to provide mobility related, rehabilitation equipment to those with a physical need that cannot afford the device themselves. Goodwill collects the equipment at stores and attended donation centers. FREE then cleans, refurbishes, and distributes to those in need.
