Holiday Heroes Needed
Imagine how hard the holidays are when you
are alone, abandoned by family, and without anything to look forward to under
the tree at Christmas. This is the unfortunate scenario for many
developmentally disabled adults.
We are the Human Development Center, a local
non-profit agency dedicated to serving individuals with intellectual
disabilities, autism, and behavior disorders.
As a non-profit, especially in these
difficult economic times, we often must look to our surrounding community for
assistance with unbudgeted needs. We are currently soliciting donations and
assistance for the upcoming holiday season.
With your help, HDC will raise enough
financial support to provide each of our 50 clients with a Thanksgiving
and Christmas Holiday to remember, and let them know they have not been
If you or your business is looking for a
worthy local charity to support this holiday season, please consider HDC.
Current opportunities include:
“HDC Holiday Hero
Sponsorship”- a $3,000 donation would include sponsorship of all HDC clients
(46-50) and group homes for the holidays, a $100 worth of Christmas Presents
for each client, and a Christmas and Thanksgiving Dinner .
“HDC Holiday House Sponsor”-a $500 donation would include
sponsorship of 5-6 HDC clients at one of our group homes, Christmas Presents
for each client, and a Christmas and Thanksgiving Dinner. (We need 9 sponsors
for this; in the event not all areas are sponsored we will split the total
amount raised between all areas).
“HDC Holiday Helpers”- we welcome and appreciate
donations of any amount that will be used towards the holiday season events.
