WARREN, NJ - The Chelsea at Warren assisted living residence, 274 King George Road, raised $4,634 to assist Quaid Mobus, 21, nephew of a long-tenured Chelsea employee, who was paralyzed following an accident on an all-terrain vehicle last September.
The money was raised through the sale of $15 dinners-to-go which were picked up at the Chelsea last Friday. The grand total raised includes a portion matched by a family member’s employer, Prudential.
All proceeds benefit the Michael Bruce Fund supporting individuals with spinal cord injuries, including Quaid Mobus.
Mobus’ injury occurred when his ATV hit an obstruction in the road, throwing him into a tree and causing paralysis and the loss of a kidney. Funds are required to continue adapting his home to his motorized chair and other changes necessary to facilitate mobility, and ongoing medical needs.
Mobus and members of his family were at The Chelsea on Friday when the dinners were distributed to people who had pre-ordered them.
“You don’t realize how many friends you have until something like this happens,” said Mobus as he greeted and thanked many supporters.
