Blossom Hill operates four houses and cares for 36 individuals with a team of 100 staff members but the 52-year-old nonprofit organization did not get here alone. It has relied on the communities and supporters who have been personally affected by Blossom Hill or who just want to support an important cause.
“Even though their loved ones are no longer here, or they have retired from our Board, many of our friends and supporters still remain active with our individuals, staff and organization,” said Lynne Urbanski, Executive Director at Blossom Hill.
Below are just some of the ways in which these generous individuals and organizations have made the lives of staff and individuals at Blossom Hill better this year:
• Delivering chocolate-dipped peanuts to all staff members.
• Buying, arranging, and donating flowers for funerals.
• Regularly delivering ice cream to each house.
• Donating turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners.
• Contributing to make sure all individuals are able to participate in activities and events.
• Supporting Blossom Hill’s essential programs and services through general operating funds.
Each of these individuals, families and organizations have helped carry out Blossom Hill’s mission, which is to help individuals with disabilities live full, independent lives. These generous supporters and their commitment to volunteerism offer hope for a better year ahead.
