RCS Learning Center is proud to announce that our 2014 Holiday Appeal raised $10,020 this year to benefit our organization! Thanks to the support of over 60 donors, we were able to reach and exceed our goal of raising $10,000 to support the “Let’s Get to Work” Vocational Program! Please see below for a list of donors who gave $100 or more to our Holiday Appeal this year.
As we shared throughout the holiday season, an estimated 85% of adults with autism are currently unemployed or underemployed. Even worse, 50% of young adults with autism between the ages of 21 and 26 have never had a paying job outside of their home. We remain committed to ensuring our program changes that for our students and those who follow. Below are some ways your contribution is making a positive and immediate impact here at RCS:
Your donation is helping us purchase a school van to transport students to a variety of job opportunities in our communities.
Your donation is allowing our students to begin earning wages for the great work they do here at RCS and out in the community.
Your donation is supporting RCS’ ability to spread awareness and acceptance in our communities by simply allowing our students to share with everyone how amazing they truly are.
Most importantly, your donation is helping to make sure RCS students don’t become part of the above statistics, but instead create a new trend of having young adults and adults with autism working alongside all of us at our jobs.
We thank you for supporting our organization and we look forward to sharing more ways your donation is making a difference here at RCS during the coming months!
