Give the Gift of Mobility with Vans for Good
Give the gift of mobility this holiday season by supporting #VansforGood to help us purchase new, wheelchair accessible vans. We currently transport close to 300 clients each day to activities like employment opportunities, volunteer activities, medical appointments, and recreational excursions. Because many of our clients have mobility challenges, it is imperative that our vans are outfitted with wheelchair lifts so they can serve our non-ambulatory clients. Your gift will help increase independence, encourage mobility, and strengthen physical and mental wellness of those we serve as they pursue their goals out in the community.
The Arc of San Diego has a fleet of 80 vehicles and over 70% of our vehicles are more than 10 years old. We are seeking to improve safety, increase reliability, and reduce maintenance costs by upgrading and replacing our vehicles, especially those with wheelchair lifts.
Although The Arc of San Diego receives state funding, these funds do not fully cover the costs of operations and no funds are provided to purchase vehicles. Our campaign goal is to raise $195,000 for three new wheelchair accessible vans. We have matching funds from The Ron Blair Future Needs Fund at the Arc San Diego Foundation to assist with this campaign. All donations will be matched with $1 for every $2 raised.
