The Rochelle Center, a local organization offering opportunities to adults with disabilities and their families, will be taking part in this years #GivingTuesday. From their newsletter:
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the start of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday hopes to inspire people to take this opportunity to improve their local communities, giving back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Taking place December 3, 2013 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving- #GivingTuesday will utilize the power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping. The Rochelle Center staff members foster an environment that values love, understanding and patience, while safely supporting 130 individuals with disabilities. Your gift will assist us to fulfill our mission to provide meaningful opportunities for our clients so they can achieve their goals for quality lives and community inclusion.
Please consider a donation this #GivingTuesday to The Rochelle Center.
