Studies have shown that giving makes us feel happy, is good for our health, and promotes social connection. We could all use some of that right about now! So, this December 3rd, aka Giving Tueday, get ready to donate to PSRS and feel happy!
It's always the right time to give, BUT Tuesday, December 3rd is especially the right time to give! That's because it's Giving Tuesday, a proud tradition for us at PSRS for several years. The Tuesday following Thanksgiving has been a day of altruism, connecting a world of givers to organizations that need them. PSRS needs you step up for our last fundraiser of the year! Help us reach our goal of $6,500.
Why give to PSRS on Giving Tuesday? PSRS provides critical supports to people with developmental & intellectual disabilities to empower them to lead self-directed lives in their own homes. In addition to the incredibly valuable work our staff do every day, we need your help.
PSRS is in full holiday spirit mode! Your donation dollars will go towards gifts for our folks, and the big end of year holiday party. This is a long standing PSRS tradition that everyone looks forward to – you can help make this another special celebration. Our costs for this one event total around $10,000. PSRS is invested in showing the people we support, our staff, and families how much we care, and how thankful we are to have the opportunity to make a positive difference in people’s lives as well as our communities.
We would love for you to be part of this, to know that for a small contribution, you can give a whole lot of happiness.
With the help of last year’s generous donors, PSRS was able to give the people we support something to really smile about. From Mariners tickets and tactile and sensory items to jewelry, art supplies, puzzles, books, music, and more, we made sure these gifts were specially selected based on the interests and wish lists of those we support. As most must stick to strict budgets, and many do not have close friends or family, this is one of several times per year PSRS gets to show our folks how much we care about them. PSRS staff spend over 60 hours planning, shopping, and wrapping presents for Santa to give to each of the nearly 70 people we support. A big party and a personal gift make the holidays truly special.
Why give to PSRS on Giving Tuesday? Giving to a cause you believe in feels good, and does good. It’s that simple. And so is making a donation (any amount) to PSRS.
PSRS gladly accepts donations throughout the year. If you are not able to make a contribution on December 3rd, please consider a gift by December 31st.
