Community giving has always been a core part of Ride-Away’s business.

Ride-Away Handicap Equipment Corporation, America’s largest provider of wheelchair accessible vehicles and adaptive mobility equipment for people with disabilities, ended 2011 with substantial donations to Lakes Region Community Services, and The Way Home. These contributions are just the latest events in Ride-Away’s long established history of good corporate citizenship.

Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) supports individuals living with developmental disabilities or acquired brain disorders and their families in the greater Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Designed to enhance quality of life, LRCS offers services such as early intervention, resource coordination, parent education, transition support, family support services, and a HomeAssist eldercare program.

Since 1988, The Way Home has worked to help low-income households obtain and succeed in safe, affordable housing. The organization has assisted more than 15,000 families and individuals with its community advocacy and homeless prevention services such as housing counseling and skills training. Jaime Kuczewski, Vice President of Ride-Away, has previously served as a member of the board.

“Community giving has always been a core part of Ride-Away’s business,” stated Kuczewski. “Both The Way Home and Lakes Region Community Services help support local initiatives directly benefiting those in need. Through our products and services, Ride-Away has the ability to help those seeking freedom and mobility, but our donations can help facilitate a much wider range of causes.”

Ride-Away has already begun its philanthropic efforts for 2012 by sponsoring a number of events benefitting the disabled community, such as resource fairs and fundraiser walks all along the east coast.
