We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Latham Centers is part of this global celebration the whole year through. As our students and adult residents with complex special needs do, #GivingTuesday inspires people to give back and improve their local communities whether through monetary donation or volunteer action.
Volunteering at a variety of for- and not-for-profit locations ranging from animal care facilities to local churches and elder care facilities, our residents continually give back to our community. Along the way, our students and adults take pride in volunteering while gaining valuable work experience and therapeutic benefits.
Latham Players, a musical and theatrical troupe comprised of Latham adult residents, regularly performs at local churches, arts centers, and elder care facilities around Cape Cod, spreading joy wherever they go.
And just around the corner, the Latham School Annual Holiday Craft Sale, hosted by our students features a variety of handmade holiday crafts. Proceeds are donated to a charity of the students’ choice. Friday, Dec. 5, 3-5pm. The event is open to the public at 1439 Main St. / Rt. 6A (Former site of New England Fire & History Museum).
To mark #GivingTuesday, we invite you to consider a year-end gift to Latham in honor of our students and adult residents with complex special needs. Rest assured, your compassionate, philanthropic support on #GivingTuesday or any other time of the year, will help provide cutting-edge educational and program support for the amazing individuals who call Latham home on Cape Cod.
