)-- Scooter Vacations
, a premier Orlando scooter rental company is pleased to announce their special Guardian Angel charitable contribution status with Kids Wish Network
. This special Guardian Angel status is in recognition of Scooter Vacations’ on-going commitment to assisting Kids Wish Network with wish children who require mobility support while visiting the Orlando area. Scooter Vacations has donated scooters free of charge to these children. Wish kids visiting the area with their families will now have the added benefit of utilizing a Scooter Vacations mobility scooter, electronic convenience vehicle (ECV).
Anna Lanzatella, Director of Development with Kids Wish Network, is thrilled with this unique partnership. “Scooter Vacations mobility scooters are a perfect fit with our charitable goal. We serve hundreds of children nationwide whose wish is to visit Walt Disney World or some of the other many great attractions in Orlando. Sadly, many of these kids do not have the ability to truly enjoy all there is to experience due to some physical limitations they may have as a result of their illness or medical condition. Our goal is to have them experience the trip of a lifetime, and with the most generous assistance of Scooter Vacations, we can better ensure their dream trip is the most memorable of their lives!”
“We are so proud to be the provider of mobility scooters for use by the Kids Wish Network wish granting program and to be awarded this status,” said Jo Ellen Andrew, owner of Scooter Vacations. “Our wide selection of transportable scooters and electric wheelchairs are a perfect match as four of our models can easily fit in a car or taxi trunk, allowing recipients that commute to the area theme parks a means to have a mobility scooter available for their use wherever they go in the area such as popular children wish theme park spots of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Sea World.”
