Wishing Well nfp

posted Oct 30, 2012, 1:57 PM by Shary Leonard

In May of 2003, Wishing Well nfp was incorporated with the intent to provide services for individuals with developmental disabilities who have needs that are not being met by other organizations.

Most young people with developmental disabilities have worked hard during their school years in special education to master skills they will need throughout their lives. It is our intention to give them the tools and assistance necessary so they can continue to learn past the age of 21, when they are no longer educated by the public school system. We believe these young adults can be valuable members of their communities if given the opportunity. Our goal is to work with each participant in ways that are interesting and meaningful to them, in order to help them progress and achieve as much independence as possible.

Stamps for Wildlife - Illinois Audubon Society

posted Apr 13, 2011, 11:09 AM by Shary Leonard

Kay MacNeil is our local coordinator for this program and can be reached at 815-469-1294, kaymac60423@yahoo.com

The Illinois Audubon Society collects, sorts, and sells stamps to raise funds for land acquisition in Illinois. Your troop can collect commemorative stamps (new or used/cancelled). These stamps cost the same as a common (definitive) stamp and you can encourage your troop families to purchase them instead of common stamps. 

Use scissors to cut the stamp from envelopes, leaving 1/4 inch of paper around the stamp. Do not remove the stamp. In the case of postcards, save the entire postcard. 

Contact Kay to drop off the stamps or mail them to her at 689 Golf Club Lane in Frankfort.

This ideas comes from council. Girls can visit these websites to coordinate simple service projects. Each of the sites have "wish lists" and needed items that soldiers would like to receive. These websites make it easy to complete troop service projects; they even include mailing instructions.
