Keeping the momentum rolling, St. Paul's!

The Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Paul's Episcopal Church-Lakeview (Louisiana) have been actively supporting The Red Thread's Wheelchair Promise Program over the past several months.

The program provides All Terrain Wheelchairs (ATWs) to disabled Haitians. ATWs enable immobile individuals to attend school, return to jobs and further support themselves and their families. These specialized chairs are perfectly suited to traverse Haiti's rough terrain.

To date, St. Paul's ECW has raised $14,251
to purchase 43 wheelchairs for Haiti!

One hundred wheelchairs are needed to fill a container before it can set course for Port au Prince. If you would like to support St. Paul's and the Wheelchair Promise Program, please send your tax deductible donation to the The Red Thread Promise at the address on the upper right or contribute via PayPal. Please mark "wheelchair" in the memo line.
