Special Needs Theatre Group Needs HELP!!!

We are Acting Up Drama Group. We are a special needs drama class for adults. We perform a play at least once a year. We love to perform on stage and have been doing this for over 10 years.  Covid 19 ruined our production this year. We have not been able to practice or get together since March. It truly has been difficult not seeing our friends each week.  Our group is managed by volunteer parents, family members, and friends who love to see us thriving. Our group has grown over the years and our costumes and props have grown along with us. We have a storage facility that used to allow us storage space for free.  We store our props and costumes there.  However, last year, this storage facility changed owners and now are charging us $147.00 a month. We have tried to look for other storage spaces to no avail, especially now due to Covid. We have no other options other than to pay this monthly rate. We have no source of income since we are a nonprofit and cannot charge for our performances. The productions we do are so meaningful to us and others. It allows our audiences to see how we shine onstage. It has helped all of us to be more outgoing and social.  We are asking for donations to help us pay for this storage unit. We appreciate any amount you can spare. We also invite you to come to our production once we can get together again for practice.  We thank you in advance for all you have done and continue to do for us!!
