Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $4,400 to “Now I Can”
Donation will purchase new physical therapy equipment for children
SAN ANTONIO, TX (February 6, 2020) — The Security Service Charitable Foundation is donating $4,400 to Now I Can to purchase a shuttle leg press system to strengthen children with cerebral palsy and other challenges. This donation will help Now I Can fulfill its mission of helping children reach their full potential and greatest independence through physical therapy.
“This leg press will help more than 100 children each year strengthen their legs to achieve greater endurance, gait, and independence,” said Tracey Christensen, executive director for Now I Can. “It is because of community partners like the Security Service Charitable Foundation that we are seeing a world with fewer crutches, wheelchairs, and surgeries.”
Now I Can was created to provide intensive physical therapy beyond the traditional few hours a week that children with cerebral palsy typically receive. They are dedicated to bringing change, hope, and confidence to children with disabilities.
“Now I Can has established a phenomenal platform of physical therapy service and financial assistance to serve children with disabilities and their families,” said Ben Wiseman, senior vice president of member service—Mountain West Region for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “We appreciate the opportunity to provide funding for a new leg press system. It’s a tool that will maximize the quality of life for children who work so hard to accomplish daily physical tasks.”
The Now I Can clinic operates eight hours daily, serving children from across the country. While children attend the three-week program, families reside at the Now I Can Cottage for the low rate of $20 per night.
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas.
