United Access, with the help of St. Louis Variety, has donated a wheelchair van to a family in St. Louis, Missouri.
With six kids, it’s no surprise that mom Dell Taylor has racked up more than 300,000 miles on the family van. One of her regular passengers is 19-year-old son Martin, who has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and developmental delays, requiring a power wheelchair to get around. Needless to say, replacing the family vehicle isn't exactly an easy task, but with the help of St Louis Variety and United Access it was made possible.
Just over a month ago, Variety referred Dell to United Access, which quickly determined that her family was a worthy recipient of a 1989 Ford E-250 full-sized van, complete with a raised roof and Braun wheelchair lift with rear manual tie-down straps, allowing Dell to park the van and get Martin in and out of the vehicle without needing additional space at the side door. The van, which has less than 90,000 miles, boasts three additional passenger seats and is up-to-date on inspections and maintenance, thanks to more than $500 in donated services by Carson Natural Bridge Automotive.
On June 17th, at 10am, the Taylor family finally received their van. Everybody in the family was very emotional as United Access General Manger Rich Venhaus handed over the keys to their van. This van will allow them the freedom to continue to bring their son with them where ever they go.
