How can I help support the Therapeutic Recreation (TR) program in Canton?
Thanks for asking! There are several ways to support programming that serves individuals with special needs in Canton and Western Wayne County. Each November-December the Summit on the Park Lobby plays host to a TR 'Holiday Wish Tree'. It is decorated with festive gift tags for items, both small and large, that will benefit Canton's inclusive recreation programs. Items like sensory toys, antibacterial wipes, and other important supplies are always in demand. Taking one (or more) of these tags and donating the listed items is a wonderful way to show local support for individuals with disabilities.

Additionally, a special fund was a established through the Canton Community Foundation to serve Canton's Camp A.B.L.E. program, which serves area youth with special needs each summer. Financial donations can be made directly on the Canton Community Foundation's Website. Simply 'select a fund', and choose "Camp A.B.L.E. Fund" to make a tax deductible donation.

Or, if you have a better idea regarding how you might like to help, please let us know! We appreciate your interest and support!
