Variety - The Children's Charity of Wisconsin
October 27, 2010
Variety rocks and rolls - literally. They provided an adaptive bicycle for a student with cerebral palsy that I service in the public schools. His family was looking for a bicycle but an adaptive bicycle was out of their finacial reach. We turned to variety and together filled out the application for an adaptive bicycle. The application was detailed but easy to complete the needed information and letters. Within two months of submitting the application he was pedeling around the neighborhood with his siblings and Mom! The bicycle works for him now and into the future. It is a quality peice of equipment with room to grow! Variety had an event party to deliver the bike to make the family and my student feel super special. The family also has an additional resource and support through other activities and services provided by Variety. Thanks Variety!!!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
services provided to students with special needs. Variety has invited many families of students with special needs to events throughout the greater Milwaukee area. They provided inservices to the Occupational and Physical Therapist in the Milwaukee Public Schools about the organizations and ways they can help service families and students within the district and area. They provided a student that I personally service with an adaptive bicycle!
