Please Note: This project is now FULL.
Organization Description: Downstown is non-profit organization with a series of residential homes in North County for adults with developmental disabilities, such as Down syndrome. Each household has 3-4 residents and a house manager. Downstown was founded in 1984 and has since grown into a 6-home community. The organization’s mission is to encourage public understanding of persons with developmental disabilities and maximize the residents’ potential for community involvement and independence.
Project Description: Create a game night basket that’s filled with fun games and treats with the suggested items below. There are six Downstown residences and we’d love for each of them to receive a game basket full of goodies. This project is for Downstown House # 2 located in San Marcos.
Suggested items: Bingo (with a wheel and all accessories), Uno and Checkers, Connect Four, and some DVD Movies (Rated G or PG). Include some snacks like pre-popped popcorn/microwave popcorn, pretzels, crackers, red vines, Jujubes, Mike n Ikes, Skittles, M&Ms, cookies, Slim Jims, Whoopers, hot cocoa mix and/or non-caffeinated sodas.
Packaging: Once you’ve purchase all the items, place them in a basket, crate or any cute container. Check out Pinterest for ideas if needed.
Address: The address of your home will be included in the email confirmation.
Delivery: Call Sue, their manager, to coordinate a time for delivery. Phone: 951-526-6787. Ideally, after 3:30pm works most days.
Fan Mail: Make and even bigger splash and write letters to each of the residents, consider it “fan mail” or simply an encouraging note. Names for each of the residents will be included in your email confirmation.
Questions: Yuchuan Lyles, [email protected]
