The Webster Five Foundation announced that as part of its Web of Caring to Make a Difference program, it will donate $3,000 to My Choice Programs, Inc. This Worcester, MA based nonprofit is looking for support of their transportation program in order to make updates to their vehicles and bring them to heightened standards of safety.
My Choice Programs provides residential, shared living and individual community services to people with mobility impairment and developmental disabilities, in order for them to participate fully and contribute to their communities. Individuals who participate in the program depend upon the availability of safe wheel chair transportation in order to access community based activities and appointments. As a small service agency with only two vehicles, My Choice Programs recognizes the need to repair and update the wheel chair vans to ensure the safety of both clients and staff who are operating the vehicle’s equipment.
Donald F. Doyle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Webster Five, stated, “We are proud of the difference that My Choice Programs is making for the individuals in need. We’re happy to support an organization who is making a positive impact in our community.”
Chief Executive Officer of My Choice Programs, Alain Beret, said “We are very thankful for Webster Five’s donation towards our vehicle repairs and updates to equipment. This maintenance is essential for our services to continue running smoothly and safely for clients and staff members, so we thank Webster Five for making it possible.”
