The Personal Energy Transportation (PET) project is a way for members of CUMC to take part in a ministry that is absolutely transformational for leg-handicapped people around the globe. Volunteers from CUMC and other area churches manufacture these vehicles in shops in Hadley & Ypsilanti Townships. Our website is: www.petmieastmi.org
CUMC's PET group carpools to Ed Noll's workshop near Hadley to fabricate and assemble parts for the PET vehicles, usually on the first Thursday or Saturday of the month. We meet at the church at 8:15 am, and return to the church by about 12:30pm. You should wear clothing appropriate for the weather, which would not be ruined by a little paint. Bring your favorite work gloves.
Please let Dave Kauffman know by e-mail or phone if you can help with this activity. firstname.lastname@example.org 248-673-1404, cell: 248-425-3132 If you are unable to volunteer, you can also participate in the project financially. It costs about $225 to build and ship 1 vehicle to a U.S. port. You can write a check to CUMC, designated for the “PET Project” in the memo line.
