BE AN ANGEL FOR THE CLC!
Every day of the year staff at the Charles Lea Center work hard to care for individuals with disabilities. During the holiday season we want to ensure everyone has what many of us take for granted – a gift. And we need your help.
It’s easy to get involved – just pick a name off our Angel Tree. Ornaments provide a “wish list” for an adult or child who receives services from the Center. Many of these individuals live at home with families who are financially strapped. Providing gifts for these individuals makes a great project for an office, business or family looking to spread holiday cheer. There are about 200 ornaments on the Angel Tree, which is located in the Center’s lobby. There is no monetary minimum or maximum for gifts. All gifts need to be returned by Dec. 6.
For more information about the Angel Tree or donations of wrapping paper, bows and/or boxes contact Stacy Bobo at (864) 472-7441 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Charles Lea Center is once again teaming up with the McCarthy Teszler School and the Spartanburg County Disabilities & Special Needs Board to host a Legislative Delegation Appreciation Luncheon. This year it will be held at the Charles Lea Center on Thursday, Dec. 12. For more information contact Pam Prevatte at email@example.com or (864) 562-2216.
