2017 November 3 – Cart #18-500

Cart #18-500, a “milestone cart” as it represents the 500th cart built by the MN-TC shop.  It is dressed up as a “Fancy Show Cart” is ready for display at churches, summer parades, and for interested groups.  A whimsical presentation of a very serious topic to catch attention for Mobility Worldwide.  Cart #18-500 was repainted in our standard multi-color pattern about one year later, packaged, and shipped overseas to be placed into the service of someone in need of mobility.

For the MN-TC shop, a milestone of sorts.  Cart #18-1500 is the 1500th cart produced by the MN-TC shop.

The WELCA of Mesa, AZ hosted an Annual Soup and Salad luncheon on March 17, 2023 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Mesa, AZ.  One of their members who knew about the Mobility Worldwide project invited Mark Moffitt of the MN-TC shop to speak about our project.  Mark and his wife were on a vacation trip to Mesa, AZ, thus the schedule worked out perfectly.  Through various fund-raising activities during the year, the WELCA collect monies to be gifted to charities of their choice.  This year Mobility Worldwide was among those selected for a gift.
