Families who live with disability often have equipment that is too small or is unused. Medical supplies can also go unused. Often these extras sit in garages or get thrown away in the garbage. It is difficult to find a place to donate them.
Look no further. There is an organization that will accept the donations and will then give the items to families who need them. The Parker Lee Project is filling that gap.
Parker Lee was an angel on earth for her two short years here. She was born with Lissencephaly and Microcephaly which changed her family’s life. Her mother worked hard caring for Parker and getting her supplies. Sometimes her mother had to argue with insurance companies to get the things that Parker needed. Now that Parker “is an angel watching over us,” her mother is giving back to families.
Parker’s mom, Megan, knows what it’s like to fight for your child. She knows what it takes to get the things that your child needs. She wants to help other families who are caring for a child with a disability or chronic illness.
When families have items to donate, they can contact The Parker Lee Project, run by Parker’s mom. The items will be picked up, or the family can ship them. The items are organized, inventoried, and stored until a family needs them.
A family that needs supplies or needs a piece of equipment can contact The Parker Lee Project. The family fills out a request form specifying the need. And if the item(s) are available, then The Parker Lee Project mails or delivers them to the family.
