Overview: Alternatives in Motion is a local non-profit serving 8 counties in the West Michigan community by providing free mobility equipment (wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, walkers, canes, Hoyer lifts, bath aides) to a diverse population of people with disabilities, including children, adults, veterans and seniors.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been unable to accept donations to keep up with the growing need for mobility equipment. This equipment is essential to the mobility and independence of individuals in our community. There is now a long backlog of clients who require immediate support. To help meet this need when we reopen, we are hosting a contact-less mobility drive at our office.
Location: 2215 29th St SE Suite A6, Grand Rapids, MI 49508 The mobility drive will be hosted here May 18 to 24 from 10 am – 2 pm.
Volunteer Needs: 3 volunteers per day, hours 9:45 am – 2:15 pm
Tasks: Volunteers will remove equipment from donor vehicles., sanitize equipment after removal and take the names and pertinent information from donors for tax receipts (to be mailed at a later date).
Safety Measures: Masks, gloves and sanitizer spray will be provided, and social distancing will be implemented. Donors will be driving up in cars with signs directing them to the back parking lot – there will be no need for them to leave their cars.
A tent will be set up as a work area and for breaks.
