On Saturday June 11th Venture Crew 77 kicked off its Operation Mobility project by collecting a variety of medical equipment ranging from crutches to bath seats. This collection took place behind the Hartley Dodge Memorial between 9-2pm. The equipment is now being stored at the Hartley Dodge for future repair and redistribution. 22 pieces of medical supplies were collected and over $50 was raised to cover repairs.

All of the equipment is to be used to benefit Madison citizens. If you are in need of equipment, or would like to donate, please email operationmobility@gmail.com.
