The Heinzerling Foundation receives a donation for wheelchair-accessible sand and water sensory tables.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Residents of the Heinzerling Community in Columbus will be able to enjoy new wheelchair-accessible water and sand sensory tables, thanks to a $5,000 check presented to Robert Heinzerling, Executive Director of the Heinzerling Community, by Max Bennett, Pathways Business Development Specialist, and Chad Fields, Pathways Branch Manager.
“This organization has had a huge impact on people living with disabilities,” Fields said. “Pathways is fortunate to be able to provide this gift to the adults and children of Heinzerling.”
The Heinzerling community is home to 200 children and adults with severe or profound developmental disabilities. They’ve helped hundreds of children since opening their doors 63 years ago and have made major upgrades to their facilities, including a wheelchair-accessible outdoor play area with water features and sensory zones .
“We help people as young as a few months old to people in their 60s,” said Brian Asbury, director of development and public relations at Heinzerling. “We rely on community support for things that Medicaid doesn’t cover, like outdoor sensory tables. This donation from Pathways will allow us to purchase several new wheelchair-accessible water and sand sensory tables that can be permanently placed in the courtyards instead of moving them.”
The Heinzerling Community provides a safe and loving environment for children and adults with severe or profound disabilities. With help and encouragement, people with disabilities can enjoy a lifetime of love, learning and growth.
