Giving those with Disabilities a Way to Experience the Beach
Updated: Feb 11, 2020
Proceeds from the 2019 annual Art Show and Sale helped purchase 4 new beach wheelchairs for the Town of Sunset Beach. The Town rents these beach accessible wheel chairs at a very nominal weekend rate for citizens and visitors with disabilities so that they can enjoy our beautiful beach. The new chairs replace some of the older, outdated chairs that were constantly in the shop for repairs. Each chair features heavy duty wheels, non-corrosive plastic bearings, 2 swivel and 2 rigid wheels, padded cushion seat, user-friendly folding footrest, and an umbrella.
