Have a Blue and Orange Christmas!
What a great year! Project MEND provided medical equipment and assistive technology devices that improved the quality of life to 1413 persons living with disabilities or illness this year!
Increased mobility and independence are PRICELESS.
Thank you to each and every one of you for the role that you play in making this happen. Whether you volunteered this year, attended a fundraising event, made a donation of medical equipment, contributed financially, or supported us in the community by raising awareness of the services we provide; YOU ARE APPRECIATED.
In this busy season of giving, being with friends and family, eating too much and making resolutions for the coming year, we are asking that you continue to support Project MEND and include us on your list of agencies that you are thankful for. Together, we will continue to make South Texas a great place to live!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Making a Difference
"Thank you so much for a chance at a better life." Edith V.
Recently we were able to provide Edith with the items she needed to be able to stay at home, where she wanted to be. She is able to continue living in her apartment, with her personal possessions and her memories. She remains active and independent because of equipment provided through our Senior Medical Equipment Reuse program.
Refurbished Medical Equipment allows low-income individuals living with disabilities to become active members of their communities. Without Project MEND, many people would live with reduced mobility and compromised independence.
Holidays and DisAbilities
The 2015 holiday season is upon us. For many this is a joyous time surrounded by friends and family.
However, enjoying this time of year is often not available for those living with illness and disability. Everyday activities that many take for granted oftentimes present challenges for those individuals who do not have the necessary medical equipment to provide them with mobility and independence. Preparing a traditional holiday meal, traveling out-of-town to family and friends, or participating in a school Christmas play or holiday musical are difficult if not impossible.
Disability is part of life; almost everyone will be temporarily or permanently impaired at some point in their life. When disabilities and limited economic resources are combined, the result is dependence and isolation. Project MEND helps individuals and families obtain the medical equipment and assistive devices needed to live life more fully.
