PENDLETON, Ind. - Inmates in Pendleton sent out their second shipment this week of refurbished wheelchairs.
The wheelchairs are refurbished through a program called "Wheels for the World."
Inmates at the Pendleton Correctional Facility restore the wheelchairs for recipients around the world. The work is done at the Correctional Industrial Facility.
"This operation is about changing lives for the better, and with 442 wheelchairs refurbished so far, it has done just that," said Superintendent Wendy Knight. "It is humbling.”
Organizers say some of the recipients in impoverished countries literally have to crawl to distribution sites to receive their wheelchairs.
The shipment sent out this week was headed to Romania, organizers said.
