C.R.A.B. BEACH WHEELCHAIR PROGRAM
WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS FOR THE 2019 SEASON
WE WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERING OUR DAILY BEACH WHEELCHAIR DELIVERY/PICK-UP SERVICE.
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO KEEP A CHAIR OVERNIGHT OR LONGER WE MAY STILL BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEEDS.
THE 2018 SEASON WAS ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL SEASON FOR OUR BEACH WHEELCHAIR PROGRAM. OUR CHAIRS WERE IN USE FROM MAY UNTIL EARLY NOVEMBER LAST YEAR! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED OUR BEACH WHEELCHAIR PROGRAM. PLEASE CONSIDER CONTRIBUTING TO OUR PROGRAM SO WE MAY CONTINUE TO OFFER THIS POPULAR AND VALUABLE SERVICE IN THE FUTURE.

Thanks to the generosity of our members and supporters, we have been able to purchase another wheelchair for the 2018 season.
SPECIAL THANKS TO THE FAMILY OF KATHY WACHOWSKI for their Generous donation of a beach wheelchair in her memory
Our "fleet" of 8 now includes a reclining chair and our newest chairs can be disassembled and will fit in an SUV or the trunk and back seat of some cars!
NEW for 2018...We now offer BEACH WALKERS . If you have some difficulty getting onto the sand but don't need a wheelchair a beach walker may work for you. Contact us for more information
The chairs are available FREE of CHARGE to anyone in the Point Pleasant Beach area.
***WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE FAMILY and FRIENDS OF LYNN GORMAN HAVE DONATED TWO BEACH WHEELCHAIRS IN HER MEMORY!
THEIR THOUGHTFUL MEMORIAL TO LYNN WILL ALLOW US TO SERVE OUR BEACH COMMUNITIES WITH A TOTAL OF 10 BEACH WHEELCHAIRS for the 2019 Season!
5 of our chairs disassemble enough to be transported in a van or SUV if necessary!
TO HELP ACCOMMODATE DAILY NEEDS WE WILL KEEP A CHAIR AT BRADSHAW'S BEACH (Washington Ave. and Ocean Ave) for assistance on and off of the beach. WE HAVE ALSO PLACED ONE OF OUR CHAIRS AT THE MARYLAND AVE, BEACH TO HELP ACCESS THE BEACH.
Maryland Ave. now has an ADA compliant Access Ramp (still under construction) that will enable regular wheelchair access to the toe of the dunes!
