A staff contacted TRAID regarding a person with whom she works. She indicated his transport chair had broken beyond repair and he was waiting for his new one to be ordered. He is able to use a walker but has been struggling with this and prefers to use a chair, especially in the winter. He visited the TRAID center and was so pleased he was able to borrow a chair that was a good fit.
