Muriel's Angels is a registered 501-3c charitable organization that provides funding for the special needs of children with physical and mental disabilities in Southern California. Many of these needs are not covered by local, state, or federal programs.
This latest project completion for Muriel's Angels, June 2022, for the Moguel Family and Perez Family, had been a few months in the making! Many thanks to all who have helped make our Charity an ongoing dream to those families who need our help.
Onto our next project!
Exciting news regarding Muriel's Angels' Mission: Our Board President's affiliation with the Veterans Administration (VA) has induced the Board to vote to include helping those veterans who have non service connected mobility issues. That is, Veterans who have served, but were
not on active duty when their injury occurred. These are the Vets that are not fully supported by the VA and need limited financial help with vehicle down payment assistance to help with their mobility challenges.
June Completed Projects:
Double Donation, Double Celebration!
Jareth Moguel and family finally get their wheelchair accessible van!
The delivery was attended by Jareth's parents Karina and Juan, and his siblings, and Valadez Middle School Academy Principal, Dr. Christa Borgese.
In a short turn around time, the Charity was also able to provide maintenance and repair for Jorge Rosas' wheelchair!
Adriana Perez, Jorge's Mom, has had a hard time getting the manufacturer to fix his wheelchair. It was all thanks to Jorge's teacher from George Key School, Grace Gordon, that the family was able to connect with Muriel's Angels and finally get his wheelchair fixed!
Both the wheelchair accessible van and wheelchair service were of absolutely no cost to the families!

Jareth has Muscular Dystrophy and as a result, his physical condition is greatly compromised. He is confined to a wheelchair. Jareth is now 14 years old, and his weight has made it difficult for his family to get him into a vehicle that is not wheelchair accessible. Muriel's Angels is presently raising funds and in search of a vehicle that would accommodate his family's needs for transportation.
Due to the unprecedented rise in cost of used vehicles, our Charity would appreciate your donations even more to help complete our mission in helping these families.

A message from the Principal of Hope School, Louie LeMonnier:
Happy New Year to all of you. I just wanted to again thank you for all the wonderful and amazing work you do to support families of children with disabilities. More specifically, thank you for the attention and love you have shown many Hope School students and their families. You have radically changed the lives of so many by providing new wheelchairs and vans that can transport individuals in a wheelchair. To those who are blessed by your generosity, these items are life-changing. Hope School is extremely blessed to have Muriel's Angels as part of our community and we are so thankful for all that you do.

A Message from Muriel's Angels
Greetings from The Board of Muriel's Angels and a happy and prosperous 2022!
We ended 2021 with the gifting of a new wheelchair accessible van to the Ali Family, and their 2 children. A heartfelt Christmas present it was. This was the 4th wheelchair van we donated this past year with no cost to the families. We also have donated other needs to some of these families who have children with these special needs.
The upcoming year has started with the near completion of a project that has been a long time coming: that is working on necessary paperwork with an insurance company to help support our donation towards the purchase of a new van for the Garcia Family, Gus and his son Aiden. Normally, families who need our assistance do not have the support of insurance or state agencies to help them with the funds to purchase one of these wheelchair accessible vans. Thus, our Charity bears the total cost for these vehicles.
Our newest project is such a family. We are presently raising funds to provide Jareth Moguel's family with a much needed accessible van for their transportation needs. Jareth is a 14 year old child/student that suffers from Muscular Dystrophy.
I am proud to say our small Charity, Muriel's Angels, has garnered much recognition from various social agencies in Southern California, and we are only limited by our funding to support these needs. Remember that 100% of money donated goes to servicing these projects.
For those who need documentation for your taxes our EIN # 82-2622082.
All the best and much thanks to those who have donated to our cause.
Muriel's Angels continues to work with Aero Mobility. We are truly grateful for their ongoing assistance in helping our Charity complete a number of our projects.
