Thank you for donating to #HelpFeedAbility!
We partnered with Safeway and Easter Seals to #HelpFeedAbility, and thanks to your generous donations the campaign raised $544,562 for our organizations!
Since 2008, Safeway has donated $7.5 million to leading-edge neuromuscular research and mobility grants across Western Canada and Northern Ontario. We’ve been able to purchase 622 pieces of mobility equipment/medical devices and home modifications valued at over $3.9 million for 237 families! Your donations will allow us to continue to help supply, equipment, home renovations, and scholarships to our clients in Western Canada and Northern Ontario.
“I am so grateful for the funding I received from the Safeway Mobility Grant. In a world where full coverage means waiting years for the bare minimum in equipment, this grant is a shining light where things are dark. This funding has allowed me to stop waiting and get a power wheelchair that fits all my needs and gives me the freedom to get around comfortably. Thank you so much Canada Safeway and MDC. Your support is very much appreciated and makes a world of difference to those of us that receive it.” - Doug Heal, British Columbia
“What you did for our family was so multi-faceted. The independence you gave Max multiplied into so many other things, his self esteem increased, his self confidence soared, his attitude about life changed, his willingness to try increased. What you are doing is not just providing accessibility, elevators, lifts or other equipment. What you are doing is giving the gift of hope; you have given our family a piece of our lives back. For that we can never thank you enough.” – Lavallee Family, Saskatchewan
