Wheelchairs 4 Kids
Located at 5820 S. Highway U.S. 1 in Rockledge, the Viera Elks recently received a $10,000 community involvement grant. Part of the grant is funding "Wheelchair 4 Kids Day Out," which will be held from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. on Sunday, July 31, at the Viera Elks Lodge. This event will feature a face painter, balloon animal artist, and picnic food. The rest of the grant money will go toward providing wheelchair upgrades and offsetting deductibles not covered by insurance. Next spring, the Viera Elks will make it possible for children who use wheelchairs to go to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of the dolphin Winter. Additionally, the Florida Elks Mobile Therapy Services provides physical and occupational therapy to children with wheelchairs at home free of charge.
