Jenny’s Market stores in the metro Denver area are helping raise funds during the month of June for the Kids’ Mobility Network, a local nonprofit that collects, refurbishes and redistributes child-sized durable mobility equipment (DME). Jenny’s Market convenience stores are co-located with Conoco gas stations throughout the state of Colorado and elsewhere. Their mission is to introduce fresh and natural food products and environmentally safe car washes at their locations, challenging the traditional convenience store model.
Kids’ Mobility Network, founded by metro Denver parents of a child with disabilities after noting how quickly she outgrew her wheelchairs, provides children with durable medical equipment (DME) to ensure greater accessibility to their communities. The still young nonprofit recently crossed a major milestone of providing $1M worth of DME to children with disabilities. For more details about eligibility and to access an application, contact Kids’ Mobility Network.
Buying a Premium car wash at all participating Jenny's Market stores in June yields benefits all the way around. The purchaser receives a free 6-pack of Pepsi and a great feeling of generosity. Kids' Mobility Network benefits in multiple ways:
- Jenny's Markets will donate a portion of the car wash purchase to Kid's Mobility Network
- Pepsi has generously allocated a $5000 donation to Kids' Mobility Network
- All patrons of Jenny's Markets have the chance to donate directly to help kids get DME
On Tuesday, June 8, 2010, the 25th Annual Variety of Colorado Golf Tournament takes place at the Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton, benefitting Kids' Mobility Network. Kids’ Mobility Network and Variety of Colorado partner often to help children with disabilities. Last year the two organizations held the first Kids’ DME Expo. The second annual expo is planned for October 2, 2010. Read Kathryn’s article about Spence who got his first adapted bicycle at that event.
Contact United Seating & Mobility with stores in Englewood, CO and Sheridan, CO to purchase new adaptive equipment for children.
