The world is a strange place right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to some difficult decisions for some of our generous community partners and they have had to cancel their upcoming fundraising events. These cancellations will lead to significant financial losses for St.Amant Foundation and we need your help.
Your support today will demonstrate your commitment to improving the quality of life for children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism and this generosity is desperately needed.
Your gift today will help alleviate loneliness, boredom, isolation and anxiety.
Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, by a generous donor in memory of Marcel Thompson!
Funds for the following immediate needs are needed:
- Electronic devices that can provide access to streaming services, social media connections, online mental and spiritual health resources and video chats. This will improve psychological and emotional health and help people stay connected, engaged and entertained while remaining safe at home.
- Your gift can help purchase outdoor furniture, adapted bikes and raised garden beds. This will encourage connection to neighbours and nature and a breath of fresh air. Feeling the sunshine and hearing the birds in the trees will bring joy and break the monotony of long days spent stuck indoors.
- Overhead lifts and power wheelchairs continue to be a priority for children and adults with disabilities. Adapted mobility equipment increases accessibility and ensures the safety of our frontline staff and the people being supported.
- Gift cards for streaming services such as Netflix or Disney+ to entertain and educate, or for local restaurants that offer delivery service. This will enable the people we support to create fun at home with takeout meals and movie nights, while supporting local businesses.
Your support will give more than 2,000 people something to look forward to!
