The Rotary Club of Tucker has entered its third year of working with
Crutches 4 Africa, founded by David and Candice Talbot of Denver Colorado. C4A
arranges for crutches, walker, canes and other medical items to be shipped to
FODAC in Stone Mountain where the Tucker Club assists in sorting and boxing the
items. Tucker Rotarian Bill Dowden then supplies his box truck to deliver six pallets
to a warehouse on the west side of Atlanta where a shipping container is
prepared for the journey to Africa.
The 2017/2018 Rotary year started with a shipment of 12 pallets to the warehouse and additional loads being
prepared that will include pediatric wheelchairs and gel mattresses. In the last Rotary year, the club shipped 30 pallets and a load of 36 pediatric
wheelchairs and 2 dozen gel mattresses.
