Since 1992 Pass It On has been providing durable medical equipment (DME) to children with disabilities and their families/caregivers, but our time has come to say goodbye. The current environment has made it exceptionally challenging for a smaller charitable organization to secure funding and navigate all the social restrictions while trying to provide a caring and quality service. And at the end of the day, there is the young lady who has been the heart, soul, and inspiration behind Pass It On. Lindsey is now 36-years-old and needs a little more TLC.
~ to all our volunteers over the years who have offered their care, concern, and time to Pass It On in assisting children attain a greater quality of life.
~ to all the wonderful donors who supported our program with their hard-earned dollars. Your generosity has had a tremendous impact in the lives of thousands of children, and we share with you their smiles and thanks.
~ to the foundations and corporations who joined us in our mission over the years, we are eternally grateful. They took the time to listen to and believe in a small grass-roots organization. You have truly made a difference.
~ ...and lastly a heart-felt thank you to the Lynn General Electric Employee's Good Neighbor Fund for over a 1/4 century of continued support of Pass It On's efforts. It has been an honor and privilege to network with the Board members over the years, and we wish them all the best.
Q... Will Pass It On reopen at any point?
