Email sent 3/30/2020 by the WDSRA Foundation Chair, Jeff Hayden:

Dear Friend,

I don’t normally send you emails like this one. But these are challenging times.

While we are all dealing with the isolation that comes with the stay-at-home order during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there are some for which this is especially detrimental to their overall wellbeing.

I am thinking of Kelsey. She is a very happy young lady who thrives when she has regular social interaction with her friends. Kelsey is used to a full social life including Rec & Roll, sports, dances and a number of other WDSRA programs. But over the last two weeks, that hasn’t been possible.

With WDSRA spring programs now canceled, Kelsey will be without that vital social interaction for the unforeseeable future. Her world has been turned upside down.

Isolation is a very real concern for Kelsey’s overall wellbeing and that of other WDSRA friends.

Parents are also struggling with no breaks from the 24/7 caregiving for a person with special needs. They depended on WDSRA day in and day out to provide those breaks. They are desperate for support right now.

But you can help Kelsey and her family.

I am asking you to help with a gift today.

Your gift will help create virtual recreation programs, video groups and more to impact the wellbeing of friends like Kelsey. Your gift will help ease the stress that families are dealing with when they need it most.

Please join me in making a secure donation to combat the isolation that threatens the wellbeing of our friends and help ease the pressure that families are struggling with right now.

Please make a secure donation TODAY!

Thank you for helping with this urgent need!
Stay healthy,
Jeff Hayden
Chairman, WDSRA Foundation Board
