Default Feel Good Story From Kingman - AZ


KINGMAN - After months of wholly negative publicity following a series of riots last July, there is something very heartwarming to report out of Arizona State Prison-Kingman.

Last week, inmates who participate in the prison's Wheels of the World program shipped out their 5,000th restored wheelchair to people who live in Third World countries - people who are desperately in need of one.

Normally, the 29 inmates who work in the program have no idea who will receive the wheelchairs they painstakingly restore, but an exception was recently made.

Program Coordinator Steve Marsh received a special request for a little girl in Africa with very special needs.

Marsh looked over the hundreds of used wheelchairs in the prison's shop, and only one met the girl's requirements. The inmates only had her photo to go on, but that was enough, because they also were aware of her tragic story. Here it is, in Marsh's words, which were lightly edited.
