Giving Tuesday 2020
Dear Parents & Guardians
We are excited to announce that Rimland will be participating in the global initiative of #GivingTuesday2020. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
During this unprecedented time, Rimland continues to strive to expand its programs and services to our community of clients. In order to meet our mission and provide the highest level of service and programs for our clients, we rely heavily on the generosity of individuals and businesses for continued support. Without that assistance, Rimland would not be able to support your loved ones with the level of care that they need and deserve. You can help strengthen this mission on #GivingTuesday2020.
As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic with all of you, and your loved ones remain healthy, but spending more time at home, we find our needs and goals have shifted. Safe communication and healthy visitation with your loved one during this unprecedented time is critical. Rimland is doing everything possible to make this a priority. We have already undertaken environmental mitigation such as installation of ventilation equipment in all our residential homes and at our Community Day Services location. We have purchased electrostatic sprayers for sanitation and increased professional cleaning personnel to ensure our homes are continually being disinfected.
As COVID-19 numbers rise, limitations continue to be placed on family visitations within the Rimland community due to local ordinances. Our current needs include advanced technical video equipment to help facilitate communication between our clients and their families. We are also seeking supplemental funding enabling our Health and Wellness department to purchase advanced temperature measurement devices and scanner kiosks for staff and client safety. You can help Rimland with this initiative.
We hope that you will take part and join us in the global initiative of #GivingTuesday2020
We ask that you make a commitment to support our appeal by making a cash donation and, via social media (Facebook, Instagram, email), ask others to do the same. Your generosity will make a difference to our clients, your loved ones, by allowing us to continue our work within our Rimland Community Day Services program and residential homes.
Please follow this link on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1ST to make your contribution.
If you are donating for #GivingTuesday2020 via our website, please use the donate button on the top right corner of the homepage and include the purpose of the donation in the memo.
As always, we appreciate your time and consideration. Be well, stay healthy.
