    Group provides mobility equipment

    People Uplifting People, a non-profit group organized in 1997, recently began providing mobility assistance to those not covered by insurance and unable to qualify for assistance from other charitable or government agencies. An approved applicant will be supplied with the mobility equipment needed: walker, wheelchair, scooter or power-fitted wheelchair.

    The organization also provides cash to victims of tragedies such as hit-and-run pedestrian or auto accidents, DUI accidents, arson that destroys home and belongings, gunshot wounds, carjackings or drive-by shootings. For information, call Earl F. Leach at 524-3502.
