NOVEMBER MONTH OF GIVING: JOIN EVERGREEN LIFE SERVICES IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Brought To You By Evergreen Life Services; Written by Jana Ford Ambeau

As we step into the season of giving, Evergreen Life Services invites you to participate in their November Month of Giving, a charitable initiative that seeks to create positive change in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. Evergreen Life Services is a beacon of support and empowerment for over 1,000 people, and this November, they’re offering several giving opportunities to make a significant impact:

1. The Smile-Makers Club: Transform Lives with Dental Care

One of the most pressing challenges faced by individuals with developmental disabilities is access to dental care. Many members of the Evergreen family lack comprehensive dental coverage, which can limit their options when they visit the dentist. However, Evergreen believes in the importance of proper dental care. Last year alone, they invested over $300,000 in dental services to ensure their residents could receive full dental care. These funds could have been used for various purposes, but dental health is pivotal to the well-being of the individuals they serve. By joining the Smile-Makers Club, you can make a difference with a small, monthly donation that will contribute to essential dental care.

2. The Celebration Society: Share Joyous Moments

The Celebration Society is a heartwarming initiative that empowers you to bring joy to the 1,000 individuals served by Evergreen Life Services. Your membership in this society provides the financial support needed to celebrate life events with enthusiasm. Birthdays, achievements, and milestones deserve recognition, and the Celebration Society ensures that every moment is acknowledged with cakes, balloons, cards, pictures, and more. Your contribution helps brighten the lives of those who deserve to be celebrated.

3. Art as Communication: Unlocking Expression

For many individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, traditional forms of communication can be challenging. Evergreen has harnessed the power of art to bridge this communication gap. Art allows these individuals to express their ideas, joy, and pain, providing them with a sense of self and pride. The artwork created is showcased in Evergreen’s online store, allowing talented artists to earn money through their creations. Your support encourages the artistic expression of those who might not otherwise have had the opportunity.

4. Supportive Employment Program: Empowering Employment

Evergreen Life Services is committed to promoting employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. Their hands-on supportive employment program matches eager individuals with employers in their communities, resulting in successful and fulfilling outcomes. Employers report that they gain dedicated, hardworking employees, while the individuals receive a chance to earn a competitive wage and demonstrate their capabilities. This program offers both group placements, where teams work under supervision, and individual placements for those ready for independent work settings. Continuous job coaching and ongoing training are provided at no cost to ensure the long-term success of both the employer and employee.

If you’re an employer interested in hiring Evergreen individuals, they encourage you to reach out for collaboration.

As we embark on the November Month of Giving, we are reminded of the incredible impact that our support can have on the lives of those with developmental disabilities. By participating in these giving opportunities, you can contribute to Evergreen Life Services’ mission to enhance and enrich the lives of those they serve. Your generosity is a testament to the spirit of giving that defines this special time of year. Join Evergreen in making November a Month of Giving to remember.
