The Crutches for Africa project is a national movement to get unused crutches to needy citizens of developing nations.

This year the Rotary Club of Shirley, Harvard, Ayer and Devens will join Dracut as local facilitators.

The club will be accepting donations on Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 38 Littleton Road, formerly Mango Grill, in Ayer. The club is requesting donations of unneeded crutches, canes and folding walkers, for eventual shipment abroad.
