[Give Chances] December Weekly Newsletter 5

Happy New Year!

As we rapidly approach the end of year, we would like to take a moment to briefly look back on what the Give Chances has done as an organization and as a community dedicated to serving the needs of children and adolescents eager for learning opportunities to become self-sufficient, independent, caring, and confident members of our society. 

Thank you for your continuous support that enables us to provide safe environments and learning opportunities to our students both online and in-person learning centers. Our students are why we do what we do, but YOU are the how. You are the essential piece of the puzzle that allows dreams of our students to come true and helps create a space where they feel welcomed and heard. As we reflect on the year of 2022, we cannot emphasize enough that your support is what fills our students’ household with love, hope, and warmth. 

Happy new year and we hope your 2023 is filled with blessings and happiness.

Successful Completion of Fall 2022 Joyful Learning!

We are excited to share that we successfully completed the Fall 2022 of Joyful Learning Program both online and in-person at Palisades Park, Bayside, and Perrispany learning centers! Our students will take time to rest and rejuvenate with their family and friends during the winter break and meet with us again in mid January.

Give Chances Staff & Lead Teacher Celebration

All of the Give Chances staff and lead teachers gathered together to take time together to wrap up this year! We reflected on some of the memories with our students and staff this year and shared encouragement for the coming year. We are grateful to work alongside such dedicated and compassionate supporters at Give Chances. Thank you for all your support and we hope your holidays are merry and bright! 

DDartists Valentine's Day Gift Bag Program

We are excited to share with you that we will soon be starting a new project with DDartists! Give Chances will be hosting Valentine's day fundraiser of chocolate gift bags which will come with complementary arts made by DDartists. All the profits will go towards supporting DDartists to receive wages in accordance with Able Account, a tax-advantaged savings plan for individuals with disabilities. DDartists have been having a great time painting miniature canvases that will be included in valentines day chocolate gift bags. More details regarding the purchase will follow soon so please keep an eye out!
