Here at ROC Wheels, one of our main outreach programs is our inmate wheelchair building program. While partnering with Hope Haven International Ministries, we have been able to employ over 10 inmates to help build our newest wheelchair, the ROCKIT.
The team lead of production at the prison is Denny Tew who has been helping build wheelchairs for ROC since 2003. He has been instrumental in building a team that helped build over 3,700 of the original ROC chairs and now build ROCKIT chairs and assembly kits to be used by YEWTHS ROC. We would like to thank Tew for his service to our organization and his dedication to our mission. Tew has left South Dakota State Penitentiary but was kind enough to gather the following testimonials from the inmates.
