The Dane Foundation continues to grow and we need you! Growth and promotion was an "understanding" experience for us all. Here's just a taste of what we've accomplished!
Matt & Melanie White load their SUV Sleigh to deliver gifts to individuals with disabilities in our area!
The mission of The Dane Foundation is to address the unique needs of individuals with disabilities, single mothers, and senior citizens. Despite the economic troubles we have all experienced this year, The Dane Foundation continues to reach out to those in need in our community and, with your help, provided for more than 500 individuals/families in our area!
We are pleased that, thanks to Timm & Elizabeth Tilson, individuals will receive Thanksgiving dinners here as well as in North Carolina and California thanks to their Turkey Trott project. As always we will take those turkey's and combine them with all the dinner "fixins" that everyone enjoys each Thanksgiving. We are honored to deliver those complete meals to families in these areas.
Throughout the summer, and especially at the beginning of this school year, we received many requests for assistance. We have been able to provide many with clothing, food, school supplies, toiletries and more...all with your help.
As we all enjoy this holiday with our family and friends, we hope you will become an ELF with The Elf Project and help us fulfill holiday wishes for many this season. More news and updates to come about our successful service in 2011!
