Yreka Student Collects Wheelchairs

Yreka Student Collects WheelchairsMEDFORD, Ore. — A northern California student spent Saturday collecting wheelchairs, crutches and walkers at a church in Medford as part of a school project.

The Yreka High School senior plans to send them to prisons in the United States where they’ll be refurbished and then sent to disable people in other countries.

“You know we are blessed to live in a country where supplies like wheelchairs and crutches and walkers are so accessible,” said Edward Rettman.

His goal is to collect 100 chairs total.
