Venture’s Dinner Delivery Initiative
April 9 - June 9
To our valued Friends of the Venture Family,
During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, as our lives are compromised daily, we all experience concern for those on the front lines, those that continue to perform daily efforts that are essential for those that require those efforts to survive. There are the obvious ones, the Police and Fire departments, Nurses and Doctors and all their support teams, Hospital workers, and so on. But there are some “hidden heroes” too; in particular the dedicated staff that cares for the individuals with developmental disabilities that live in group homes. Venture is committed to these competent and dedicated staff members, without whom, we could not care for those that need us.
Because the COVID-19 virus has caused this group to be short-staffed many of them are working longer and more numerous shifts. Venture is offering an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of those providing daily care to Venture residents. We have adjusted our “$pend to $upport” fundraising campaign to more directly, support our vulnerable population and their caregivers during these grueling times and to aid those restaurants that support us all year long. We have created a Dinner Delivery system to alleviate the mealtime pressure and to offer something special during these challenging times.
Want to help? Just sign up here to contribute a dinner, either several or just a one-time donation, for the residents and staff of a Venture Home. You can choose the Venture residence to receive dinner, and then select a local “$pend to $upport” restaurant that will prepare and deliver the meal(s). Alternatively, you can also choose to make a monetary donation by putting in an amount beneath the house selections, and we will select the house and the restaurant for you.
If you require assistance with this process, please email email@example.com. If you would like to speak with the Venture Foundation staff, please call (845) 580-9380 and leave a message; we will respond to you within 24 hours.
As always, we thank you for your support and appreciate your contribution as we all navigate these unstable times and adjust to our new norm.
May you rest easy during the holiday season and throughout this pandemic, stay healthy, and continue to help us help those that cannot do it without us.
