A recent request for donations made by the Hesston College engineering department ended up blessing the donor as much as the college.

The engineering department at Hesston College made a request to the community for donations of electric wheelchairs or scooters to be used in student projects, and alumna Glenda (Shirk) ’83 Kauffman was one of the donors who answered the call. After the recent passing of her parents, Kauffman was unsure what she should do with her father’s scooter, but this request made it clear.

“It is really such a blessing,” admits Kauffman. “This is something that has been weighing on my mind for the past 18 months. I just couldn’t in good conscience junk it, but at the same time couldn’t find anyone who needed it or would take it!”
