It’s PSRS Appreciation Day June 1st!

Come celebrate the first annual PSRS Appreciation Day and show your appreciation for PSRS, the individuals we support, and our amazing staff.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 1st | 1:00pm-4:00pm

WHERE: PSRS Office – 149 Park Ave N. | Renton, WA  | 98057

Do you know what the following all have in common?

  • Established headquarters, and contributor to the Renton  community since 1985
  • Employer of nearly 230 people
  • Over 400,000 hours of services provided per year
  • Over 35,000 miles per month of transportation provided

The answer is Puget Sound Regional Services (PSRS). It all started in 1983 with a desire to support two Deaf-Blind individuals with developmental disabilities to live fulfilled lives outside of institution walls, coupled with a passionate belief that people with disabilities should be connected to, and participate fully in their communities. And not just living in their own homes, but engaged in activities that generate satisfaction and contribute positively to society. Incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit in June 1985, PSRS today brings over 30 years of community support experience to nearly 65 individuals living in their own homes throughout King County from Queen Anne to Covington.

And it was just a few months ago that Renton City Mayor Denis Law issued a Proclamation declaring June 1st to be PSRS Appreciation Day. PSRS is proud to be recognized, and is invested in promoting and supporting diversity, education, and inclusion for all in the Renton community and beyond.

We’d love to see you.  Stop by the office, say hi, and join us for some treats. You can also support PSRS by considering a donation here.

 

 

You Gave BIG!

The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event on May 3rd (extended a full day to May 4th due to technical issues) was awesome!  Thanks to our donors, we raised $5,120 before stretch funds and employer matches are applied! We are very thankful to our current, and first time donors.  Your support is so meaningful.

And this comes just in time for the 1st Annual PSRS Appreciation Day, as declared in a Proclamation by Renton City Mayor Denis Law earlier this year.  June 1st is our 31st Anniversary as a supported living non-profit organization (founded in 1983, incorporated in June 1985).  We feel very appreciated thanks to all of you!  More information to follow.

Get Ready for GiveBIG!

Mark your calendar for May 3rd, GiveBIG is just around the corner.

What is GiveBIG? The Seattle Foundation’s one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.

Why should I give?  PSRS needs your support!  We are passionate about helping individuals to have meaningful experiences and live successfully in the community.  Access to recreational activities and home maintenance that  promote well being and inclusion is often limited as most of our clients simply cannot afford expenses beyond their basic needs.  You can make a difference.

Your gift is matched! That means more money goes to PSRS so we can keep     doing what matters.  Learn more at  seattlefoundation.org and Give Big to PSRS on May 3rd.  OR give in advance – you can schedule your online donation now!
