Hi It's Katie! Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Family and Friends,
Katie is once again participating in the virtual Run/Walk to help raise money for her day program at HMEA. HMEA provides services to adults with disabilities ages 22-102. Katie’s particular program, with close to 70 individuals, is work-based which allows her to volunteer and provide community services in our local area. It's hard to believe this is Katie's seventh year at HMEA and she loves being a "young lady" and working each day.
The individuals in her program have historically been involved in all sorts of jobs including landscaping, food service, helping our senior citizens, running a full service flower shop and many others. This year, much of jobs are on hold and Katie and her peers are creatively being productive while "working" in-house. She loves to work, is proud of the contribution she is making and will hopefully, with any luck, be back at it soon.
What makes this fundraiser different from many others is that all of the donations stay in our local community (all the donations Katie receives are put to work in her Franklin program) and these donations keep the participants engaged, social and productive.
With the funds raised last year, Katie's team was able to, among other things, purchase equipment and supplies to help support the shift to internal work. The crew is adjusting to this new restricted environment and we would love it if you found HMEA worthy of your hard earned charitable dollars On behalf of Katie and our family, thank you.
