Our Community Needs our Help
ALSO is a service provider to over 1,000 people living with cognitive, and physical disabilities as well as seniors throughout our community. We have been serving the local area for over 80 years, providing care, support and programming across Essex County. As we continue to provide services to some of our most vulnerable neighbors, we expect that there will be rapid changes in our charitable organization with needs never seen before. Front line staff are our greatest asset and we know how hard they are working to keep people cared for and safe during this Covid 19 pandemic. This will continue to be our top priority.
We expect things to get more difficult as time moves forward, and want to assure you that ALSO will be here to help. Our organization has always been a place that steps up and assists people whenever the need arises. We will continue to help our consumers as much as possible, but we can’t do it alone.
As a charitable organization, we rely heavily on our incredible community to help fund additional programs and services that are not covered by other sources – this is where you come in.
From basic household items like cleaning supplies, to groceries and other necessities, these day to day costs are prohibitive for many in our community. We are currently recruiting volunteers and sewing supply materials to make masks that will be used to protect health care workers in the community. These masks are in high demand and will be used directly to prevent the spread of the virus.
Consider a gift today to ensure that our friends and neighbors have access to the things they need to get them through this incredibly difficult time. Your donation will go directly to helping us purchase hand sanitizer, face masks, sewing materials, soap and protection equipment needed by health care front line staff.
WE ARE CURRENTLY NEEDING FUNDS to purchase sewing supplies for masks for frontline staff. Sewing volunteers are running out of supplies.
