Here is a little about our next project, and how much money Every Ability Plays Project has to raise.
Our first project of 2021/2020 will be purchasing the We-Go-Swing Wheelchair swing for Casa Angelica. Casa Angelica is a home that houses 16 children, and young adults with very special needs. Casa Angelica also has their own day program called Art from the Heart, that serves their young adults. They offer a full range of therapies for their residents. People can also go volunteer at this special home. I am so excited about this project, because I volunteered at Casa Angelica for three years. I did a lot of hand over hand things with the young adults, and or, I would read to them. One time, they had me make a paper communication system card for one of my young adults. It was cool. This special home is located in the South Valley, and it is operated by the Canossian Daughters of Charity. The We-Go-Swing Wheelchair swing costs $60,000. We have raised $12,135 for this special project.
Our second project will be redoing the school playground at Colinas del Norte Elementary School in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. They want their playground to be accessible for their side by side students. Every Ability Plays Project has offered to purchase a wheelchair swing, 2 adaptive swings, a wheelchair slide and putting them a playground ground so that it can be easier to push their students who are in wheelchairs. This school playground project will cost $115,000.
