Giving Tuesday. November 28, 2017.

Why give to PSRS on Giving Tuesday?  Aside from the awesome work we do to support people with developmental/intellectual disabilities who choose to have self-directed lives in the community, and in addition to the incredibly important work our staff do every day, we need your help.

This year, there was a big change that directly impacts the people we support.  For the past ten years, PSRS partnered with a local company whose employees purchased individual gifts for all 67 of the people PSRS supports. These gifts are given to them at our annual holiday party. Unfortunately, due to downsizing of their program, PSRS was recently notified that the company is no longer able to provide gifts.

The impact: The people PSRS support look forward to this party every year, and for many without family, it is the only holiday gift that they will receive.  It might be the only gift they receive all year.

YOUR impact: You can help keep the spirit of the holidays shining! PSRS is putting a portion of donations from Giving Tuesday towards holiday gifts for our folks.  Your donation can help a PSRS individual know that someone cares, that someone took the time to select a present just for them.  It warms our hearts to see the smiles and sheer excitement when Santa hands out these special gifts – YOU can help make it happen when you donate to PSRS.

Need more reasons to give to PSRS on Giving Tuesday?

We support people with disabilities who make the choice to not live in an institution, to have their own homes and self-directed lives.

PSRS supports people with very diverse needs and abilities, including those who are Deaf, Blind, and Deaf/Blind.

Staff do incredibly important work. They are care takers, teachers, cooks, shoppers, nurses, drivers, house cleaners, companions, and MORE.

We love what we do – we are committed, dedicated team who wants to make a difference in the lives of people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Everyday.

Giving to a cause you believe in feels good and does good.

PSRS is continuously improving programs, training, and recruiting efforts so that we can provide the most comprehensive supports tailored to meet unique needs.  Our work is never done because we will always look for ways to make lives better.

Please make a year end contribution to PSRS so we can continue to give people with developmental/intellectual disabilities the community supports they need and deserve.
