Donations

   
Like many non-profit organizations, DCDSNB depends on the generosity of individuals and organizations in our community to help us provide services for people in need and much less fortunate than most folks.  Since 1967, DCDSNB has helped many thousands of people.  Currently, DCDSNB serves over 500 families.


Due to the rules and regulations involved in receiving state and federal grants, some of our agency's needs are difficult to address.  In addition, we are proud to say that we place our consumers' needs first whenever possible.  As a result, many of our agency needs are unmet.  This is unfortunate because items like new audio / visual equipment would be used to train our employees which would indirectly benefit our consumers. 

Making Financial Donations

   
DCDSNB is happy to accept financial donations. All Financial Donations assist our agency in covering costs that are not covered by state and federal funds.  In many cases, the entire cost of an approved service is not covered and the agency must bear the shortfall.

If you are interested in making a donation, but prefer to donate items or services rather than money, please consider the following items from our Wish List:


Angel Tree:  Many of our consumers wouldn't have a Christmas if it were not for the generosity of kind community members.  Each Christmas DCDSNB Angel Trees are placed in the community with paper angels describing the consumer.  If you don't have time to shop and wrap gifts, cash donations at this time of year are a blessing as the "Scott Center Elves" are always scurrying to make sure each consumer gets chosen off the tree.

Case Management:  Pull ups and Diapers in all sizes for male and female children and adults, Underpads, baby wipes, Super Absorbent briefs, medical gloves, Ensure, KY Jelly, Catheter trays.  Any donated adaptive equipment would be wonderful, but our storage space is limited so please call first.

 

Early Intervention:  Educational books / toys for children up to five years of age, Play-Doh for interactive play, mini-trampolines with attached handrail for autistic children

 

Senior Program:  Simple puzzles (50 pieces or less) and simple crafts for adults, magazines for craft projects, gardening supplies (tools), windchimes, bird feeders/bird seed, plants for their Senior Garden. **An addition to the Senior Program building that would provide them with a screened in back porch to enjoy their garden would be wonderful- it would not only bring more light to their building (which does not have many windows)- the screened in porch area would also allow our seniors that don't enjoy direct sunlight to enjoy the garden in a more shaded protected area while the others in the group enjoy the garden...then they will all be "together" in the garden.

 

Adult Day Program:  Musical instruments for new music class, magazines, art supplies; party favors and prizes for annual picnic, Christmas & Valentine's Day Parties; art supplies

 

AdministrationProjector screen, Cases of white copy paper, Color copy paper, Locking storage cabinets for Training supplies, Audio / visual equipment for Training purposes (i.e., TV, DVD player, surge protectors, etc.), and shelving for computer servers

 

Services Needed:  Landscaping (trimming trees and shrubs), gardening helpers for the Seniors Garden.
