On Thursday, Oct. 20th, Teammate Michelle Jones and the HAT (Hargrove Adaptive Toy) project participants, along with the harGIVES Board, unveiled their first adaptive toy as part of the HAT Project to an 11-year-old child with cerebral palsy.
Last December, Michelle met Stefanie Pablo during a field trip with her son who shared about her daughter, Emma’s, special mobility needs. From that moment forward, Michelle became dedicated to using her engineering expertise to assist children with special mobility requirements.
This led to the formation of harGIVES (Hargrove Innovative Volunteer Engineering Services), a new volunteer organization that provides the means and opportunity to give back to the community utilizing Hargrove Teammates’ engineering and technical expertise.
