#GivingTuesday 2018

This Tuesday, November 27 is “Giving Tuesday” ... a day kick off the holidays by giving to your favorite charities. The Board and staff of the North Country Center for Independence is asking you to help with our mission to promote greater independence for people with disabilities in the North Country.

There are three main ways you can help support NCCI:

1. Make an online donation to our “Homecoming Fund” through GoFundMe.

These donations will be used to help people with disabilities in the North Country move out of hospitals, nursing homes, and other facilities into their own homes. Funds are used to collect, store, and distribute home-making supplies like kitchen utensils, bedding, furniture, and adaptive equipment that often aren't covered by other disability support programs.

Just register and designate NCCI as your recipient charity. Amazon then donates a percentage of all your purchases to NCCI. These donations cost you nothing, and do not change the price of your purchases. It’s a great way to direct resources to NCCI on an ongoing basis, but especially during your holiday shopping.

3. Volunteer for NCCI.

There are formal and informal ways you can help NCCI with your time and talents. As a Long Term Care Ombudsman, you can help us advocate for people with disabilities in nursing homes and adult care facilities. You can also help us document accessibility of area businesses as you go about your everyday errands. Or, you can help us assist people with disabilities working towards greater independence in our community.
