Gators Give! The UF Campaign for Charities, the annual employee giving campaign, has already kicked off and once again, the CIL is participating! The General Campaign runs from September 25th to October 13th and CIL staff were able to attend the Kick-Off Event on September 28th in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. They were able to interface with UF employees and showcase all the wonderful things we do in our community, and help raise awareness of our participation in the 2023 UFCC.
All UFCC donations will be designated towards our Wheelchair Ramp Building Program, that helps provide wheelchair ramps to individuals with disabilities and their families in our rural areas. If a home is not accessible for a wheelchair user, it isn’t just difficult, but nearly impossible for this person with a significant disability to have an acceptable level of independence. As a result, the person lives day-to-day in a home with inadequate accessibility. This impacts their overall access to their community. Consequently, isolation, accidents and other medical complications are more likely to occur when appropriate levels of accessibility are not available within the home. Your donations will truly change lives and increase our consumers’ levels of independence!
Thank you so much to all of our loyal UFCC donors, who give to the CIL year after year! You are invaluable to us and truly make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities in our rural communities who are in need of accessing their own home. We appreciate each and every one of you!
**Please note that the campaign also accepts gifts and donations from individuals who are not employees at UF! So, if you’d like to donate to the CIL through the UFCC, and you’re not a UF employee, the UFCC website has a link for “other donors” that anyone can use. Thank you in advance for your support and Go Gators!!
