Wheel chair Van Gets a Lift

Rotary Club of Nelson Daybreak President Sandra England was proud to present a $3500 cheque to Kootenay Car Share to complete the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van that can be accessed with a Kootenay Car Share membership. Corrine Younie, Coordinator of the Age Friendly Community Initiative of Nelson Cares Society expressed eternal gratitude to the club for topping up the $22,000 budget for the van. Bruce Gardave of Kootenay Care Share emphasized the importance of the "Get A Lift" program in Nelson as it provides access for families who have members in wheelchairs.
