Here are just a few examples of how your much-appreciated gifts are put to work:
A donation of $50 can be used to purchase board games, books, and puzzles to help students develop fine motor, cognitive, sensory, and social/pretend play skills, as well as enhance their focus and attention.
A donation of $100 can be used to purchase games such as putting tees for miniature golf to improve our students’ gross motor skills.
A donation of $250 would purchase an iPod touch, case and extended warranty. For children, teens and adults who are minimally verbal or non-verbal, use of this type of augmentative communication system is vital to their development.
A donation of $500 helps send a child or teen to the Therapeutic Summer Camp for individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome/High Functioning Autism. He/she will be provided with social coaching to promote the development of peer interaction skills, flexible behavior, and self-control.
A donation of $1,000 allows the Groden Greenhouse to purchase poinsettia “plugs” needed to grow our holiday crop. Clients working at the Greenhouse learn gardening skills useful in preparing them for paid employment.
A donation of $2,000 can be used to purchase a state-of-the art computer and data entry program for our adult clients to help prepare them for paid employment.
A donation of $5,000 can be used to purchase a SMART Board, an interactive whiteboard used for teaching, engaging students and improving learning outcomes in the classroom.
There are many ways to donate, including: giving stocks, bonds and mutual funds, coins, and wills and bequeaths.
If you're unsure about how to donate, please call Toni Lautieri, Director of Marketing & Development, at 401.274.6310, ext. 1230 and she'll be happy to assist you.
