“I’ve been in Panama for 21 years as a volunteer. But I’ve been down there for 16 years, 6 months of the year, getting medical supplies and prosthetics to people, and especially kids, who have disabilities or are paralyzed.
I’ve done more than 50 hands, we’ve given out thousands and thousands of pairs of glasses. Hundreds of people in Beaver County are involved — I can’t pack all these containers myself!
Give us an arm and a leg and we’ll do the rest! That’s what we say, and people have stepped up to help. Our next shipping will be on Monday, Sept. 26th at 8am, from our home in Aliquippa (115 Reesman Drive). We can use: sheets, towels, blankets, baby blankets, bed pads, adult diapers, walkers, crutches, 4-footed canes, wheelchairs, prosthetic arms and legs, hearing aids, medical supplies — anything that’s not expired.”
(Tom McCormack talks about the great work his foundation does to help people with disabilities in Panama. The Thomas L. and Linda J. McCormack Foundation collects a range of items, from hearing aids to prosthetic arms and legs to wheelchairs, walkers and canes. To help, visit: www.
