Clarke COSPT Collecting Assistive Devices April 30

April 19, 2016: The Clarke University Organization of Student Physical Therapists (COSPT) needs your help in changing lives with the gift of mobility.

The group is again seeking donations of used or broken wheelchairs, walkers, crutches or canes. The items will be donated to Wheels for the World, a non-profit organization that refurbishes the devices and sends them to countries that do not have access to such devices.

COSPT will be collecting assistive devices from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 30, at the main entrance of Catherine Byrne Hall on the Clarke campus. If you're unable donate that day, please either drop items off in the Physical Therapy Office, located in the main lobby of Catherine Byrne Hall, or call (563)588-6382.
