WDSRA: Gratitude at this time of thanks and giving


Are you feeling it? As November rolls in, I can’t help but feel the abundance of gratitude being projected all around us. Maybe it’s because Thanksgiving is approaching. That is certainly a time to reflect on all the goodness in life and community. It could also be the start of the holiday season… a season that exudes joy.

I feel it. I am thankful for the community of people in my life. Family and friends who nurture and support me as well as the colleagues who challenge and guide me. Beyond that, I am grateful for so many people who I don’t actually don’t know personally but who make my community a place in which I am proud to live.

As a member of the Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) community, I am grateful for the support of everyone who has touched the lives of our participants and families.

By choosing to share your time and talents volunteering with WDSRA, you choose to make a positive impact on someone’s life… we so appreciate YOU!

Perhaps you joined our team of program staff and have worked in one of our many programs, you created one-on-one connections that are so very important to every individual’s wellbeing… we are grateful for YOU!

You possibly made a donation, attended an event or connected us to others. Thank you for making us a part of your life!

If you would like to see the impact that your involvement with WDSRA has had over the past year, I urge you to take a look at our FY21-22 Gratitude report. There you can see how every interaction has made a difference in the lives of both participants and families.

If you would like to continue supporting WDSRA participants and families, consider making a donation to our annual appeal going on now through 12/31/2022. And thanks to the Coleman Foundation, your donation may qualify to be matched. Simply make your donation 11/15 thru 12/15/22. For every donation of $225 or more made online at www.wdsra.com, the Coleman Foundation will donate $225 to WDSRA (up to $12,500).

Thank you for changing lives!
