Stolen wheelchair returned undamaged


“I’m not used to being on the front page of any paper,” Champagne said. “My granddaughter’s going, ‘My grandmother is a celebrity!’ She wanted to bring me to show and tell.”

Champagne said she had received many offers of help, and The Salem News received numerous inquiries from people offering her everything from donations to help getting to the grocery store. A member of the Masons contacted the paper to say they have several donated wheelchairs available and hoped to connect with her to help out.
