In the summer of 2020, Wellco, LLC purchased a few boxes of cookies from some local girl scouts. Through the interaction with this local troop, we learned about Grace and her amazing idea for her Girl Scout Gold Award Project. The Wellco team loved her idea to install a wheelchair accessible swing in Lincoln Park, and aimed to help in any way possible. Through donation, supporting her chicken dinner fundraiser, and making several Facebook posts spreading awareness of her project. We hope we made even a small impact on Grace and her efforts, because we know she made a huge impact on us! 

An excerpt from the Wellco, LLC Facebook page:

“Help us make a difference! Grace, one of the Girl Scouts who helped us with our cookie giveaway earlier this year, has a huge project planned! As her Girl Scout Gold Award Project, she is hoping to put a wheelchair swing in Lincoln Park – we LOVE your ingenuity Grace! Wellco, LLC would love to see this happen, but it’s going to take some help from our amazing community!

To help make this project happen, we’d love it if you would consider donating to Grace’s GoFundMe page!
