Mouhamed “Paco” first came to the Neil Squire Society 8 years ago for an Assistive Technology assessment. He was 17 years old and had just had a cancerous tumor removed from his spinal cord. He used a wheelchair at that time and through extensive rehabilitation is now able to use crutches for short distances. Paco joined the Society’s Working Together Program (then called Employ-Ability), and through this program, we helped secure Paco employment at the 306 Hip Hop Sk8 Shop (new window). It was while working at the Hip Hop SK8 Shop that Paco developed Handi-Able, a clothing line which has grown to become quite successful.
As a way to give back for the help that he has received, Paco and his team are holding a fundraiser for the Neil Squire Society on April 30th. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Neil Squire Society. We are humbled and honored by Paco’s gesture and we hope that you will attend his event and support his clothing line.
