NORWICH, CT (WFSB) -

Channel 3's Kevin Hogan stopped by Norwich Holiday Inn today for the 8th Annual Gift of Mobility event, where over 500 free motorized wheelchairs were given away to those in need since its inception eight years ago. 

The owner of AZ Pawn, Phil Pavone, has helped put this together and has this giveaway every December by collecting, refurbishing, and giving away the motorized wheelchairs.
