Dick Scott Motor Mall Donates $2,450 to

CASE Cares for Barrier Free Playground Equipment

 

 

LANSING, MI – 9/28/11 – Dick Scott Motor Mall, located in Fowlerville, is donating $2,450 to CASE Cares to be used towards the purchase of playground equipment for children with physical and/or mental disabilities to play on at Lansing’s Potter Park.

 

Says Jud Scott, Vice President of Dick Scott Motor Mall, “We are delighted to be able to support the development of the playground for these children.  To raise the money, we held a special promotion between August 15 and 31, 2011, and made the commitment to donate $50 for every automobile sold during that time.”

 

“We are extremely grateful to everyone at Dick Scott Motor Mall for their support of this very worthwhile project.  It is our belief that children in the greater Lansing area with physical and/or mental disabilities will have more opportunities to safely play – and just have fun,” says Kathy Devine, Chair, CASE Cares board of directors.  The playground will also provide a barrier-free environment where children, parents, grandparents, and siblings can relax and interact.  When completed, this project will help maximize the development of children, regardless of their age or ability.”

 

Ingham County Parks and Recreation officials are providing the land at Potter Park for the playground.  CASE Cares is responsible for obtaining the funding and overseeing the project’s development and construction.  There are over 115,000 children in the greater Lansing region (Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Ionia, Livingston and Shiawassee counties) with physical and/or mental challenges.  Kids should be kids – it’s their job to play and have fun.  Because of varied disabilities or special needs, their opportunities are limited.

 

Dick Scott Motor Mall is family owned and operated and has served the Ingham and Livingston county area for over 22 years.  They are a full service dealer for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram, including sales, service, body shop and glass repair.

 

CASE Cares is an all volunteer, 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization established by CASE Credit Union during fall 2007.
