Centers for Independent Living Partner with Humanitarian Bat Mitzvah Project
The Centers for Independent Living received 75 manual wheelchairs this summer to distribute to those in need. Brynn Hochman and her family from Los Angeles have been working with American Wheelchair Mission as part of a humanitarian Bat Mitzvah project. She initially focused her efforts raising money to bring wheelchairs to Vietnam, Africa and Israel. They are now bringing their humanitarian efforts to Appalachians and have partnered with the CILs to identify individuals who need these chairs.
