The Laporte-Nevis Knights of Columbus purchased a number of wheelchairs in various sizes to be provided to someone in need in the surrounding communities.

These wheelchairs are available at no cost. Once the person using the wheelchair no longer needs it, it is returned to the Knights of Columbus for redistribution.

The organization recently provided Cass Lake-Bena High School with a smaller sized wheelchair to be better positioned to meet the needs of their students.

According to the news release, school district nurse Melissa Jenson, said “having a wheelchair for students that better fits their body size really helps when that student is already having to deal with recovery from an injury.”

Call Gary Roerick at 218-760-8266 for more information on how to obtain a wheelchair.
