The Little Red Dog Foundation donated one therapeutic cycle to Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs (DSN). This is the fourth cycle the group has donated to DSN consumers.
“To see the smiles on the faces of those we donate to is just priceless. These cycles really can change someone’s life and I’m just proud to be part of the joy that is passed on to each and every one of them,” said Anne Guthrie, founder of Little Red Dog Foundation.
“In the past, Little Red Dog Foundation has donated to DSN allowing some of the consumers to move freely and gain a feeling of independence. I’m thrilled the foundation is coming back to give more consumers the opportunity to feel a sense of accomplishment these cycles offer”, said DSN Day Program Director Bill Love.
Little Red Dog Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides specially equipped therapeutic three-wheeled cycles for children and adults who have a mobility challenge. Since 2006, almost 400 cycles have been donated to various organizations and individuals across the Lowcountry.
The Kiwanis Club of Beaufort was also at the donation. The club’s members help put the cycles together and help maintain the cycles. The Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire Department has also helped in making these donations possible. Once the cycles are shipped, they are then delivered to the firehouse and put together before being donated.
