Look for PET OH-Stow at Christ Community Chapel’s ‘They’ve Been Gifted’ celebration!

What is PET OH-Stow?

PET OH-Stow is the official name for ‘The PET Place’ in Stow, Ohio. This is a manufacturing site that produces Personal Energy Transportation (PET) carts for mobility impaired people in developing nations. The PET hand-crank propelled cart is a great solution to the challenge of getting around on rough terrain in remote areas.  For more on PET carts, see: .

What is PET OH-Stow’s mission?

Our mission is "to reflect the love of Jesus Christ by bringing the gift of mobility and dignity to those in developing countries who are unable to walk." The gifting works on a number of levels.

At the spiritual level, PET OH-Stow is about lifting up the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus said, ‘if I be lifted up, I will draw all men to Me.’ PET in Stow leads with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to offer the less fortunate the ultimate gift from God, salvation in Jesus.

On the economic level, it costs $250 to build and ship one PET cart. The typical recipient earns about $100/year, and pays nothing for the cart. Compassionate donors pay for the production and shipping of PETs.

At the personal level, our mission is in the Name of Jesus we lift people up. Every gift of $250 can lift one more person out of crawling in the dirt, and into a life of dignity.

 Where do I come in?

PET OH-Stow provides two alternatives for you to help fund mercy in motion at the December 6 and 7 ‘They’ve Been Gifted’ event:

  • You can purchase hand made gifts at one of our tables during the event at any CCC campus, or
  • You can donate $250 in Honor of, or in Memory of a loved one for a PET cart at the event.  The cart you have funded will bear a decal similar to the one below.
