This has been a challenging year for all of us dealing with the effects of COVID-19. We are blessed here at ProAct to be working and able to bring back participants to our locations after being closed for several months.

We have faced many limitations this year, but we are back in service in the areas of employment, skills training, and enrichment and we are grateful. It is our privilege to be chosen to provide meaningful services and opportunities to meet individual needs.

This year we have developed virtual classes and have been able to reach people in their homes to provide activities, social interaction, learning and fun. To meet the technology needs, we needed to purchase Kindles for those who did not have access to this new way of communicating.

Transportation is also an important aspect of providing integrated community employment and getting back and forth to ProAct. Thanks to our fleet of buses and vans, there is always safe and dependable door-to-door transportation. More than 95 percent of the individuals we serve cannot drive due to their disabilities. Our transportation service provides opportunities that make a difference in the lives of hundreds of individuals with disabilities, whom we serve on an annual basis.

We are respectfully requesting donations to support our technology and transportation service. Your donation will allow us to continue to serve those with disabilities to enhance the quality of their lives.

ProAct is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

We wish you a wonderful and joyful holiday season!
