Local Resident Donates Single Occupant Van to Matheny
In addition to providing medical care and education for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities, Matheny does everything possible to improve their quality of life. A key factor in accomplishing that is the ability to transport students and patients to activities in the community.
Matheny has several multi-person vans, but, up until very recently, it did not have any small-sized wheelchair accessible vehicles that could carry just a single individual. That has all changed, thanks to the kindness of Bernardsville, NJ, resident Doug Kimmelman, who owned a handicapped-equipped 2008 Toyota Sienna XLE. Kimmelman decided to donate the van to Matheny, and it will be used to transport students or patients to family functions or on shopping trips when bigger vans would be impractical.
