Target demographics: Variety serves Wisconsin children who are mobility impaired, 21 years of age and younger and whose needs are not met by other sources, including family, school, insurance and service program resources.

Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2013, we directly helped 61 children get the durable medical equipment, therapy and services they needed and purchased approximately $100,000 through our Freedom Program. We hosted 29 events through the Future Kids program with more than 2,000 participants. We hosted 18 families for Chatter Matters! Communication Camp.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: make a difference in the lives of children with physical disabilities and give the volunteer a sense of pride, satisfaction and accomplishment. The intangible benefits of volunteering are endless.

Geographic areas served: Wisconsin

Programs:

The Variety Freedom Program encompasses mobility, communications and experiences. The Freedom Program exists to help children with physical challenges obtain confidence, freedom and independence by funding durable medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, walkers, van lifts, house ramps, adaptive car seats and strollers, specially-equipped bicycles and tricycles, bath equipment and stair lifts, for those with the greatest financial need.


The Variety Future Kids Program provides memorable educational and play experiences that would likely be inaccessible to children with physical challenges due to mobility or financial restrictions. The program takes children and their immediate family members on fun, free outings.

Chatter Matters! Communication Camp is a residential camp for children who use speech generating devices and their entire family to become better communicators in a fun, traditional camp setting.

Mission:
Providing life-enriching assistance to Wisconsin children challenged by physical disabilities.

I was a recipient of a piece of equipment from Variety almost 30 years ago and have always been grateful, not only for this help but also for the support and love this organization gave to my family. A few years ago, I became involved again by joining a volunteer committee. I'm so happy to be ... more »
