Tabs For Wheelchairs
This letter is posted on behalf of Tabs for Wheelchairs:
Our 20th Anniversary year was a very successful one thanks to all of you! Western Scrap Metals, where all our tabs are delivered and recycled, just informed us that we brought in 14,284 lbs. of tabs this last June. This equals approximately 21 million tabs. It is the largest total yet! We received a cheque for $8,955.46.
As mentioned in our July newsletter, we also received a generous donation of $30,000 which is being used to purchase 4-5 wheelchairs that will be given to individuals who have need of a specialized wheelchair at the present time.
The number of participants in the program has also increased. Attached are updated lists of the schools and companies/groups that are now saving tabs. We now have 119 schools and 194 companies/groups.
Also attached is a picture of next year’s recipient. She is a lovely young lady by the name of Scarlett. Our tabs program has done so well this past year that we are once again going to be able to present a second wheelchair. It is going to be another sport wheelchair to the Manitoba Wheelchair Sport Association. MWSA is always happy to receive more chairs of various sizes. The sport wheelchairs are used by many for their different weekly sport events.

Once again, we can’t thank you enough for your continued support as it has made the Tabs for Wheelchairs the success that it is today! Our next newsletter will be in April 2019.
