Ornament sales help make medical equipment available


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bartholomew County residents can spread Christmas cheer easily in their homes this holiday season — and among those without sufficient insurance to cover needed medical supplies.

The nonprofit agency Access-Ability, formerly the local chapter of Easter Seals dating to 1962, is promoting its annual tree ornament sale, featuring four creations this year. One is a likeness of Cummins Inc.'s Corporate Office Building. Others feature Columbus East High School, which is temporarily sold out, Columbus North High School and St. Peter's Lutheran School.

Money from the solid brass ornaments, priced at $20 each, helps Access-Ability provide wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds and related items to people without the resources to cover such a cost. Equipment recipients frequently donate whatever amount of money they can, Olson, said.

Please read Wednesday's edition of The Republic for more details.
