Each year, Variety the Children’s Charity International hosts a conference that brings together Variety chapters from around the world to celebrate all that has been done to help Variety Kids and to share ideas for the future. During this Variety World Conference, Variety International also presents various awards to different chapters for their dedication to serving Variety Kids throughout the year.
At last week’s Variety World Conference 2019, Variety the Children’s Charity of St. Louis was presented with an award for the “Variety Freedom Program.” This award recognizes our chapter for our Durable Medical Equipment (DME) program that works to provide local kids and teens with special needs with access to vital medical equipment.
Our DME program gives tens of thousands of dollars in medical equipment each month, including wheelchairs, standers, communication devices, orthotics, hearing aids, therapeutic bikes and so much more. We provide each with the goal of improving independence – and freedom – for every child and we are consistently striving to meet an ever-increasing need.
Thank you, Variety International, for the recognition! And thank you to all of our amazing supporters who continue to make it possible for us to help so many Variety Kids through the DME program.
