The Issue: Social Activities for Youth with Disabilities
Young people with disabilities often have limited opportunities for work and social interaction after graduating from high school. Programs such as The Tavon Center's day program can support them and their families as they connect with the local community, gain new skills, immerse themselves in nature, and make friends.
The Campaign: Building Accessible Seating in a Garden
If this Grassroots campaign raises $1,120, then The Tavon Center can fund construction costs and materials such as lumber, nails, and tools for its Build a Bench-a-thon event. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding the event's landscaping costs, including gravel, plants, and compost. All funds raised past $1,500 will go toward funding scholarships for young adults with disabilities to attend The Tavon Center's program.
The Tavon Center is partnering with the Pomegranate Center and Foster the Future to put on a one-day Build a Bench-a-thon. The event will help beautify the facility's gardens and transform them into a relaxing space with accessible seating so that the program's clients can connect with nature and socialize.
