I came across this in the APP.COM and it's an article on a Wall Township man who organized a drop-off collection of prosthetics (artificial limbs), crutches, walkers, wheel chairs, etc for donations to Haiti. A Virginia
Group "Physicians for Peace" has information on organizing drives. Now he
has to get the stuff to Virginia to get to Haiti.
It's a great cause and I saw some of these things offered on Freecycle, with one woman throwing them out this week if no takers…NEVER toss these types of things, bring them to a senior building if you have walkers and ever the old fashion shopping carts, etc. Crutches are sometimes harder to get takers, but walkers are great items for the elderly.
Hirsch planned to gather items for another month or so, perhaps holding another drive or two. He still has to figure out how to get the items to Physicians for Peace in Virginia.
Here is the link to the article, you may have to cut and paste the whole URL if it doesn't work on a click of the link.
""I thought I should give back a little bit,'' Hirsch said. ""I've had a good life.''
