Build-a-Wheelchair® is a corporate social responsibility program born out of a desire to help American veterans and others with various mobility challenges. In this fun and worthwhile program, groups use teamwork skills and iPads® activities to earn the materials necessary to assemble, test and decorate these new wheelchairs for donation.
A fun and engaging energizer, followed by a thorough program walkthrough by the lead facilitator, will kick off this impactful event. After your teams have built their wheelchairs, they will proceed to the safety station for a mechanical inspection. Once completed, artistic notes of encouragement are designed and attached. If space allows teams will then engage in an obstacle course maneuverability challenge against other teams.
The wheelchairs will then be staged with your teams for a memorable photo shoot. When possible, a representative from the chosen charity will now make a surprise appearance, sharing information about their organization and the impact your donation will have on the recipients.
The focal point of this CSR event is to benefit the countless people who, with your generous donation, will be gifted with these beautiful, brand new wheelchairs.
To ensure a great experience, aspects of this program may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
It's been a while since I first contacted your sales department to ask about what we might work on together… phew! We’ve covered a lot of ground since then with 4 big programs in 3 countries building a total of over 800 wheelchairs! A BIG thank you for everything that we managed to achieve. Your Build-a-Wheelchair event was a HUGE hit for us at Dell.
Thank you very much for suggesting the Institute on Aging for the lovely much-needed donation from the Build-a-Wheelchair program you delivered for Facebook®. You are an awesome team! It was such a pleasure to meet you and your teammates. The majority of our clients are low income, so a wheelchair is a huge expense. We transition seniors who are in skilled nursing facilities and hospitals back into the community. We find them housing and work with them to help them be successful in living independently again. These wheelchairs will truly make an impact in the lives of seniors in our community. Thank you once again, it was truly a pleasure to work with you on this.
Build-a-wheelchair for veterans was a great cause. The program was fun and encouraged thinking outside the box. I liked being able to move throughout the iPad challenges without having to do everything in order. Allowing the groups to loosen up and not be so straightforward was a good team building experience. Taking pictures in different themes made it fun. A special thank you to your staff for the great job they did keeping the event going, no one was bored. It will be an event we will definitely do again. And, I will definitely pass along the name of Best Corporate Events.
