Every Christmas Eve, after all the boys and girls go to sleep Santa Claus delivers presents, sharing magic and joy all over the world.
A couple of weeks before the big day, Santa takes a break from his hectic schedule and makes a special stop at Adult & Child. He is coming tomorrow to visit with our young patients and their families – just like he has done for more than 25 years – to hand out presents and pose for pictures.
For the young people Santa is magical. However, for Adult & Child the source of the magic is you – our donor, our volunteer and our friend. You give of yourself. You are our Santa Claus.
And your gift is magical. It is impactful. It is critical.
We serve young people with cerebral palsy and sensory issues, muscular dystrophy and other physical and developmental disabilities. For many of our patients’ families the traditions that many of us take for granted are challenging, if not impossible to create.
Standing in long lines, cold weather, crowds, loud sounds and bright lights can all be barriers for our young patients to see Santa. But when Santa comes to Adult & Child, our young patients are in a familiar, intimate and safe place surrounded by people they know and work with.
You donation enables us to provide more than therapy to these children. You help us to create relationships with our patients and families. You help us to build on those relationships to create opportunities for them to enjoy family traditions. You help us serve the whole family.
Thank you for your support.
