Thank you for your consideration in helping me raise money for Oregon Supported Living Progam's Arts & Culture Program for 2019!!
While people with disabilities have their most basic needs met through the state and insurance like residential assistance, supported living programs, and community inclusion and employment services, they have little to nothing left over for education, therapeutic recreation, personal growth, and joy...the real "zest" of life.
Organizations like the Oregon Supported Living Arts & Culture program rely solely the on generous donations and support of community cooperatives, sponsorships, and fundraisers to bring inclusive, professional art and recreational therapies to people of all abilities. Your fundraising support through the Mohawk Valley Metric Century will help continue the amazing opportunities that the Arts & Culture Program provides including over ten different art classes taught by professional artists on a quarterly basis to OSLP clients, adults with disabilities from other programs, and the general public. This program is truly inclusive and open to individuals with and without disabilities, making it one of only a few programs of its kind in the US.
