Elmer K., 86, Youngwood, PA

Elmer King, a resident of Youngwood, PA, recently had his wish for a special outdoor chair granted, thanks to our Westmoreland County, PA chapter. King, 86, is a Korean War veteran. He is diabetic and has limited mobility because of a previous infection in his foot. King loves to sit outside on his porch to enjoy nature and talk with his neighbors, but doesn’t have a seat that is comfortable enough for him.  Regular chairs are too low for him to get himself up and sitting in his wheelchair for an extended period of time is uncomfortable. He wished for an Amish style chair with a wide seat and higher seat height so he can enjoy his time outside safely.
