Our programs recently moved into our new spaces at the Hub. With the larger spaces, we are needing additional programming items including art room supplies, playground equipment, sensory gym mats and swings, and game room items. We’re partnering together to raise $30,000 for each of our organizations to purchase supplies that are suited to our unique spaces and the individuals we serve.
