Put The Wheels On Selfhelp!

Put The Wheels On Selfhelp!

We’re going places! But we need your help!

That’s right: we are going places!  That’s because our campaign focus right now is to replace our current van! Together, we can purchase the specially equipped wheels on which we literally rely to transport our residents safely to their appointments, field trips and gatherings. We need your help to put the wheels back on Selfhelp!

Those new wheels belong to the Ram ProMaster 2500 Non-Emergency Medical Transport. This van, equipped with Ram’s exclusive “SmartFloor system”, provides unlimited seating and wheelchair layout options for multiple Selfhelp residents and caregivers simultaneously. It meets all ADA requirements and includes a wheelchair lift with 800-pound weight capacity. The van’s leading-edge technology offers our precious cargo safety, space, comfort, and mechanically assisted movement in entering and exiting the van. We are so excited to add this wonderful vehicle to the Selfhelp family!

Here’s what our new van will look like, once we raise the $100,000 required to purchase it for The Selfhelp Home:

Please add your generous, a tax-deductible, year-end gift to The Selfhelp Home to help to make this purchase possible.

To make a gift of stocks/securities

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to The Selfhelp Home, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value — and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date we receive the transfer.

Please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You can do so by e-mailing [email protected]. If you need to speak to someone 24/7, you can call SCHWAB ALLIANCE @ 800-515-2157 (24/7) with any questions.
