Temporarily disabled students will be rolling around campus a lot easier in the future thanks to the donation of two wheelchairs from Healthkeeperz, a Pembroke-based regional home health agency.

The wheelchairs will be loaned on a temporary basis to injured students. Formerly, students had to rent a wheelchair.

"We need wheelchairs a lot more than you would think," said Cora Bullard, director of Student Health Services. "We really appreciate this gift. Wheelchairs are very expensive, this is a really nice thing for them to do for us."

"We saw a need that we could fill," said Angie Revels. "We are always happy to help the university."

Healthkeeperz is a rapidly growing comprehensive home health agency serves 10 counties and employs 450. The company has four major divisions, respiratory, medical equipment, pharmacy and home health services including skilled nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy.
