SMOKEY POINT — Village Community Services is looking for donations of a number of items identified as needs by its direct service staff.
These items will help VCS improve its residential and vocational services for adults with disabilities who live or work in Snohomish County, including Arlington, Marysville, Everett and Tulalip.
VCS's "wish list" of items includes funding for staff training, a wheelchair-accessible van, vehicles in good condition for client transportation, ergonomic office chairs, new or slightly used computer equipment, household and auto repair tools, and arts and craft supplies.
Picnic tables, potted plants, plantable trees, shrubs and flowers would also be appreciated, to help beautify participants' homes, while used iPads and iTouch pads in good condition are needed to run communication applications for adults who have low or no verbal ability.
Other notebook computer technology is needed to run VCS's portable and confidential therapy documentation system. To donate, please contact Michelle Dietz by phone at 360-631-2027 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are also needed to plan and implement VCS's 2013 "Taste of Decadence" fundraiser. The planning committee meets at 5:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month in Arlington. If you are interested, please contact Dietz by phone at 360-653-7752, ext. 14, or via email at email@example.com. "Taste of Decadence" is scheduled for May 18, 2013, and helps raise funds for vocational and residential services for adults with disabilities who live or work in Snohomish County.
