M-NASR Annual Appeal
Every donation, regardless of size, makes a difference.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a very challenging year for the Maine-Niles Association of Special Recreation. We have re-created how we recreate and, thanks to technology, we were able to stay connected with participants even when virtually everything was shut down. But reducing our programming so drastically earlier this year as a result of the pandemic has meant that our revenues have also been reduced considerably. If you are able, a financial contribution will enable us to continue to provide the high-quality programming our participants need during such a unique and unprecedented time.
Help us make a difference in the lives of children, teens and adults with disabilities.
M-NASR’s recreation programs will continue to help give structure and provide added support. We strive every day to help our participants experience a sense of normalcy and community during a year filled with so much uncertainty. Here is what one participant’s family has to say:
“M-NASR virtual programming…has been a blessing for Eileen during the COVID-19 shutdown and continued social distancing. She loves the Wildcats Workout, Yoga and Sketching programs. It really gives her something to look forward to every week. And seeing other people is wonderful! But I must say the Las Vegas Tour was a HUGE hit! I could hear her and others giggling and laughing and in awe of everything. Thank you to the M-NASR team for all you do for the participants. It has made things seem a little normal!”
