From the Scootaround press release:

LAS VEGAS, March 3, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Individuals who require the use of a mobility scooter for everyday life will soon have an opportunity to receive a scooter at no cost, through the Clarence Vincent Foundation (CVF). Named after the father of Scootaround's CEO, Lee Meagher, the foundation donates mobility scooters to qualified applicants who apply through one of the foundation's partnering organizations.

"We are very proud to carry on my father's legacy and to serve the disabled community in such a tangible way," says Meagher. "Scootaround was founded as a result of my father's needs and it's only fitting that we provide this life-enhancing service through a foundation that bears his name."

A select number of organizations have partnered with the CVF for the initial foundation launch, with more to be added as the foundation grows. Current partners include The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, National Stroke Association, The Society for Accessible Travel and Hospitality (SATH) and The United Spinal Association. Partners are responsible for receiving and processing applications for their respective memberships.
