Delta Funds Support Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough
“The Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough services individuals and families with someone who has Down syndrome within the Peterborough area, Northumberland County, and Kawartha Lakes. We service and support over seventy families.
The Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough, is very thankful to Delta Bingo [Peterborough] for providing us with an opportunity to earn vital funds to support our programs. This money share is extremely important to our program, and it assists many individuals in continuing to strengthen their social connections and social/life skills in general. These skills are essential to becoming integrated within our community, and their individual success.
Weekly (pre-Covid), DSP would facilitate social programming such as karate, breakdancing, dinner and dance, music, drama, art, movies and many other fantastic programs. These programs are staff supported and are an essential part in not only teaching and reinforcing social skills; but also providing families/parents with structured safe, and supported respite.
People with Down syndrome learn best when provided extra learning opportunities; as well as concrete learning. We would not be able to provide these kinds of supports without Delta Bingo’s support in being able to be part of this amazing program!
These programs are invaluable to our members! They look forward each week in not only seeing their friends, but also in taking part and haivng fun in these exciting programs.
From everyone at DSP, we thank Delta Bingo [Peterborough]!”
