WILL YOUR COMPANY BE PARTICIPATING IN THIS YEAR’S ANNUAL CASUAL DAY 2010?
Each year, a rendering is created that is unique to Tennessee and the artwork is dedicated for the use of UCP’s Casual Day. The artwork is normally used on the Casual Day T-shirt and a small poster. This year’s Casual Day theme features “Tennessee Historic Theatres”.
Make a donation to United Cerebral Palsy and make a difference in someone’s life! Participating companies allow their employees to donate $5 or $20 and receive some great items that are donated from sponsors to go into the packets. The employees are allowed to where their T-shirt on Casual Day and this year’s date is dedicated on June 25, 2010.
Casual Day is a unique and successful annual event mainly because all of the donations stay in Tennessee and are used to serve people with ALL disabilities who have no other resources. UCP builds wheelchair ramps across the entire state; provides recycled wheelchairs, walkers, bath aids, strollers, car seats, standers, etc.; provides home modifications (like widening doorways or raising countertops); offers educational seminars; hosts a free weekly recreation program; provides holiday food boxes for the most needy families; offers assistance for “Inclusive Summer Programs” for children.
If your company has interest to participate in this worthy cause, I invite you to contact my friend and long time Director of Middle Tennessee’s United Cerebral Palsy, Ms. Diane Dietrich. Diane can be reached at (615) 242-4091 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
