Giving Tuesday

Today is the first annual Giving Tuesday in Canada. Start this holiday season with a celebration of giving!

Here at the Developmental Disabilities Resource Centre of Calgary (DDRC), we are raising funds to launch a new Saturday Children’s Learning Program to help children with developmental disabilities improve their quality of life. Many children who have developmental disabilities require assistance, but families often lack the resources or networks to provide the best opportunities for these children. In the Saturday Children’s Learning Program, we will improve co-operation skills, comfort being in groups, and gross and fine motor skills. All of these skills encourage a child’s development and participation in his or her home, school, and community.

We believe that people with developmental disabilities who receive this support in childhood will be more involved in their communities as adults.

How will you give back?
