National Preparedness Month

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is to always be prepared because disasters don’t wait. September is National Preparedness Month, and FEMA has wonderful resources for your family. Their resources account for people with physical and cognitive disabilities, the elderly and children. So check out their website below!

A Special Thanks to our CIL Board!

Recently, a CIL board member, who wishes to remain anonymous, generously donated $1500 to the CIL. Also, that amount was matched by another foundation this board member is affiliated with!  It was such a wonderful gift, and we cannot say thank you enough to this AMAZING board member!  

In addition, we are proud to say that 100% of our board members donated during the Amazing Give. We are so grateful for our board and their continued support of the CIL and our consumers!

Thank you for making The Amazing Give 2020 a success!

Thank you to everyone who helped make The Amazing Give 2020 a success for the CIL! 
Your donations will help us continue our youth programs and ensure that youth with disabilities can successfully transition from high school to post-secondary education and/or employment.  Your donations will also be incredibly helpful for our Wheelchair Ramp Building program, as the funds will provide additional resources for building ramps. But these are only a few examples of the things we can achieve with your support!

Overall, your contributions will help us to continue with our mission, to empower people with disabilities to achieve their goals for independence!

We raised nearly $5,500 this year, which is AMAZING, especially during these challenging times. We could not have done it without your generosity and support!

Thank you again, and we can’t wait to do amazing things with you in the future!
