~We continue utilizing our designated Helping Hands Soc/Rec cellular telephone to bring to each and every activity in case of emergencies. It is with a staff person at all times. That telephone number is 610-506-6723. Also, if you need to cancel for a particular activity, the vans leave for activities as follows: Wallyball-5:00pm on Monday nights, Bowling-12:30pm on Sundays, Swimming-4:30pm on Wednesdays. We check the general voicemail at the Helping Hands office and also mine (Laura’s office voicemail) before leaving for every activity. If you will not be attending or need to cancel, please contact the office prior to these times.
~As mentioned in all the previous newsletters, if I forget to mention someone’s’ birthday in the birthday page, or I get the dates wrong, or if you are new in our group and I do not have you on the Birthdays Page yet, please do not hesitate to let me know.
~I continue to encourage families/providers/participants to register for the Soc/Rec Programs via email with the office. You will receive an email confirmation to all emails from either Wendy or Nora. Please be specific of your pick up and drop off spots, as they sometimes vary. Registrations should not be done via postal mail, as the time elapsed usually means that you are on the waiting list. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
~NOTE: In the case that your newsletters are misplaced in the future, or to keep up to date on our start dates for programs, the latest newsletter is available on our website at www.Helpinghandsinc.com
NOTE: WAIVER FUNDING COST IS NOW $195.00 PER DAY. PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON TO YOUR SUPPORTS COORDINATOR.
