Spring It On 2018
Our 2018 Spring It On campaign kicks off at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20th! This year our goal is to raise money for our mini-grant program. Mini-grants are funds used to fill gaps in services, programs or supports for the people we serve. Each year, our Community Services Support Foundation receives multiple requests for mini-grants to enhance services, add programs, or provide new experiences for the people we support.
Last year, some of the mini-grants that were awarded included funding for:
A yoga program to help people we serve reduce stress while exercising
Equipment and software to create a recording studio at one of our sites so people in our programs could express creativity and experience music therapy
Cameras that were used by people we support to explore their interest in photography while capturing their daily experiences as well as sight-seeing trips around the Buffalo area
Our annual Creating Connections Picnic, where people we serve have a chance to engage in fun activities, socialize, and network with various vendors to learn about local resources available to them. The event included dancing, learning about therapy dogs, information about local health care vendors, airbrush tattoos, face painting, a visit from the WNY Superhero Alliance and more!
The people we support are able to explore all different kinds of possibilities with the help of these mini-grants, whether it’s learning a new skill or pursuing a hobby. See below for some of the mini-grant funded activities we have been able to provide in the past.
