Thank you from all of us at RCS Empowers, Inc.

RCS Empowers, Inc.

Thank you so much for supporting RCS Empowers, Inc. through our annual "Shine On" fundraising event. We are thrilled to let you know that this year's virtual event exceeded our expectations! The success of this year's event is because of you, a wonderful and supportive community who believe in what we do. Thank you again for helping us to fulfill our mission "to empower individuals with disabilities so that they may live, work, and function with dignity and respect."

On Friday, November 13, 2020, RCS Empowers, Inc. presented Shine On, a Virtual Holiday Festival. The free online program highlighted the amazing stories of RCS participants. Viewers learned about the impact that RCS Empowers makes in the lives of those they serve and in our community, and were awed with musical entertainment.

This year, sponsorships and your continuing donations are even more critical because of the impact of the Covid19 pandemic. Over 225 people with disabilities and special needs who previously attended engaging programming at RCS, have been home and, consequently, much more isolated. Early on, RCS created and launched a Phase I virtual service called "RCS Connects". RCS Connects provides opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in virtual learning, job coaching, and support services. It also allows them to connect with their friends and co-workers, as well as provide the social network they need to feel safe and supported. Our goal is to continue to enhance this virtual program as well as create and redevelop both onsite and remote services to meet the needs of our participants and their families.

Thank You to Our Tree, Wreath, and Centerpiece Sponsors
