The Columbia County justice center got some new wheels Friday.
Thanks to a donation from Connie Hill, the justice center now has wheelchairs available for handicapped visitors.
A Dearing resident and retired records office manager for the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, Hill said she donated the wheelchairs that belonged to a friend that recently died.
"A friend of mine that I was taking care of passed away last February and I still had his wheelchairs (one electric, one manual)," said Hill. "I knew the justice center could use them and I think he would have liked they were being put to good use."
Hill's sister, Columbia County Probate Court Director of Traffic Division Gloria Crosby, works at the justice center and helped unload the wheelchairs.
"We've been in dire need of these," said Crosby. "Our handicapped spaces are really far away from the building and a lot of people can't hardly make it. Hopefully, these will be enough to help them out."
