On March 23, the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club’s inaugural “Wheels for Wheels” fundraiser raised over $25,000 to pay for 2,500 wheelchairs in coordination with the Wheelchair Foundation of Florida. Each dollar raised will go directly for the purchasing and shipping of two containers of wheelchairs slated for distribution in the Bahamas by Rotarians and the foundation later this year.
