Since 2006, the Special Kids Fund (SKF) has been dedicated to providing access to adapted mobility vehicles for those in need through the MagicMobility program. This program is designed to collect donated accessible vans and transfer them to families of individuals with disabilities. SKF also works to provide funding for families to purchase a handicap van conversion and have dealerships refurbish older and higher mileage vans for the needy.
What began years ago as SKF’s local “Donate a Car” fundraiser, asking those who do not need their wheelchair accessible van anymore to donate it to a family in need, has grown to be a nationwide program to fit the needs of those around the country. Because of the dedication and generous donations of those involved with SKF, this organization is now best known for their wheelchair van assistance program for the underprivileged.
The name of one of SKF’s founders, Jerry Greenfield, may sound familiar as a part of your favorite ice cream brand’s delicious duo Ben & Jerry’s. Also, if you’ve watched Seinfeld you may know co-star Jason Alexander, who is another one of the organization’s founders. These founders, along with all the other dedicated SKF partners, have brought their wisdom and experience to guide this organization to success.
