Mobül: the mobility store was so pleased to play a role in the donation of 16 mobility scooters from one of Mobül’s customers, Kenneth Bloom of Hawaii, who wanted to express his appreciation to our veterans. He recognized a need among many veterans for portable mobility scooters. His brother, David Bloom, who lives in Long Beach, came to Mobül to discuss the donation with Wayne Slavitt, Mobül’s Founder and CEO, and it soon became a reality.
Two local veteran-based non-profits received 14 of the 16 scooters. The remaining two scooters went to a veteran-based group in Hawaii. These organizations will provide the scooters to veteran-related individuals in need of mobility assistance. The two local organizations are Disabled American Veterans and American Gold Star Manor. The scooters are also outfitted with scooter safety flags and either baskets or oxygen holders. “We were so pleased to facilitate this outstanding donation from Ken Bloom to our nation’s veterans. Ken’s generosity and kindness exemplifies the deep appreciation felt toward our veterans for their sacrifice and lasting impact on our country”, commented Wayne Slavitt.
Joel Plante, Sr., Field Supervisor for Disabled American Veterans, commented, “On behalf of our veterans and the DAV Department of California, I would like to thank Mr. Kenneth Bloom for his very generous donation of 10 electric scooters.”
Terry Geiling, President of American Gold Star Manor remarked, “We are so grateful to be a recipient of these great scooters from Mr. Bloom. We will put the scooters to very good use.”
The scooters are manufactured by Mobül’s largest supplier, Golden Technologies, based in Old Forge, Pennsylvania. Golden helped make the donation possible through discounts and free merchandise in recognition of our nation’s veterans.
In making the donation, Ken noted that, “We owe such a debt of gratitude to our nation’s veterans who have given so much for our wonderful country. My small gesture will help a handful of these very brave people.
