Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You like to do pretty straightforward, behind-the-scenes work on your own. You’re comfortable navigating your way to new addresses, meeting someone there, and getting the donated equipment (like a powered wheelchair) into your vehicle. You like the idea of being able to choose your own daytime volunteer hours, and you don’t mind driving around town year-round.
About Alternatives in Motion
Alternatives in Motion firmly believes everyone should have the opportunity to participate in society and not be hindered by mobility issues. Through their one-of-a-kind wheelchair donation and refurbishment program, they give the gift of mobility to individuals living in Grand Rapids in need who may not qualify for other types of assistance.
What Others are Saying
“Volunteering for Alternatives in Motion has been invigorating as my impact is extremely valued and immediately received. I have personally been involved with wheelchair maintenance and process improvement initiatives. Working with AIM's staff members has been amazing and the facility is very conducive for volunteering. Even though I do not work directly with many of the wheelchair recipients, it truly warms my heart to know that my hands helped somebody gain back the gift of mobility!”Tyler
