Review for Variety - The Children's Charity of Wisconsin, Elm Grove, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our company has had the opportunity to work with Variety in two capacities— as a provider of medical equipment and as a member of their advisory committee. Both have been positive experiences. Variety works with a diverse group of vendors to find the best equipment for kids at the best price—always contentious of costs, but never sacrificing quality or cutting corners. Their efforts to find the right equipment to meet a child’s special needs and their commitment to help the kids and their families--not only with equipment, but with special projects and group outings that enrich their lives --is nothing short of remarkable. It has been very rewarding for us to work with Variety and to see first-hand when the equipment is delivered, how thrilled the kids are—and their families as well. Variety programs are reviewed and validated by professionals working with kids with disabilities to ensure the integrity of the programs. The advisory committee reviews applications, confirms the validity of the need/request, verifies that the equipment requested is appropriate and meets the child’s needs, and ensures that Variety is spending their programming dollars as wisely as possible. Everyone working with Variety has been enthusiastic and passionate about their cause. It’s amazing how much they have already accomplished for kids with special needs. Plus, they are always looking for new ways to help the kids and to reach out to families in need. It is both a pleasure to work with the Variety staff and committee members, and a rewarding experience to work with the recipients.
