M.C. Mobility Systems recently worked with Teddy’s Star – A Foundation for Hope, to provide a customer with a Bruno Valet Seat for her disabled son.
Jackie Napier of Lexington, KY, contacted M.C. Mobility Systems in Cincinnati after finding the mobility dealer online. When she realized she would need help funding the equipment, she reached out to Teddy’s Star Foundation. The funding was made available to Teddy’s Star Foundation by an anonymous donor to help it expand and provide more of such services in the future; the donor challenges others to help by giving tax deductible contributions to the foundation.
Although Teddy’s Star Foundation had never worked with a certified mobility dealer before, they were eager to combine their efforts with M.C. Mobility Systems to help Ms. Napier and her son. Teddy’s Star Foundation Executive Director, David Lindquist, referred to the Foundation’s work with M.C. Mobility Systems as a “rewarding experience.”
“M.C. Mobility’s people were professional and handled requests in a timely manner,” Lindquist said. “Most importantly, they provided a great service that has enhanced the life of someone truly in need.”
Teddy’s Star Foundation is a not-for-profit organization in Anniston, Alabama that provides assistive technology to people who cannot afford it. Its founders started the organization in 1999 in memory of their son, Teddy, who was killed in a car accident. The goal of the foundation is to continue Teddy’s record of helping others by providing those in need with a more independent and productive life.
This year, Teddy’s Star Foundation is expanding its mission by joining with one of America’s oldest and highest rated not-for-profit treatment centers to serve persons and families in need of assistance with alcoholism, addiction, and related problems; as well as providing services to veterans and their families who suffer from the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
