PET Leighton is going to be featured on channel 13, NBC, news. Tune in on January 25 at 5:00 to see our facilities and more!
Thank you for all the help for continuing to build PET vehicle. Through donations of time, material, and funds, we have reached a new milestone of PET #1600!
Who needs a PET?
Millions of people in this world are in desperate need of mobility because of landmines, polio and other diseases, birth defects, and amputations. It is a life-changing event to go from dragging oneself in the dirt and mud to having three wheels to go wherever one wants to go! For a donation under $300, we can build and ship one PET vehicle. The gift of a PET is at no cost to the recipient….it is the Gift of Mobility.
PETs are sturdy hand-cranked vehicles given freely to the recipient. The PET is a wheelchair that goes where wheelchairs can’t go! More than 50,000 PETs have been distributed worldwide. Watch for the blue/green carts produced by our volunteers in Leighton.
