Dear Friends, Parents and Guardians,
As the holidays approach us again this year, we at Rimland are thankful for being such a tight-knit community. In particular, it is the Direct Support Professionals who make Rimland such a safe and wonderful place. Their commitment to providing superior care for the individuals we support is truly admirable. This holiday season, Rimland would once again like to show our gratitude to our Direct Support Professionals by providing each of them with a gift card.
In order for us to provide these well-deserved gift cards, we are appealing to all of you for contributions, great or small. Donations can be made right here on the website (click on the Donations Page) or sent by mail. If you donate by mail, please note that it is for the staff holiday gift cards. Your donations can be mailed to: Rimland Services, NFP, 1265 Hartrey, Evanston, IL 60202.
While Rimland’s policy prohibits staff from accepting gifts directly from parents and guardians, staff will be notified of any contributions made by parents and guardians. Rimland is appreciative of those who have already provided contributions, and thankful to those who will be sending theirs in. This is an excellent way to demonstrate support for our hard working staff.
Over the past 45 years, Rimland’s Direct Support Professionals have helped strengthen our mission by providing endless care and empathy for the individuals who call Rimland home. They are the backbone of our organization and help ensure our future remains bright.
As always, we appreciate your time and consideration. We wish each and every one of you a safe and happy holiday season.
Pamela Y. Watson
