Happy New Year from the DSFA!
2013 was filled with many blessings for the DSFA of Greenville. It was a year filled with advocacy, outreach and awareness, new members, the first annual iCanShine bike camp, our most successful Buddy Walk yet, and an amazing showing of support and kindness by Riverside High students during Spirit Week. In many ways the successes (both monetary and non-monetary) in 2013 have formed a foundation that will play an integral role in the future of DSFA. As we kick off the new year with a strategic planning meeting, we will use the results from the DSFA survey which was conducted in the Fall to guide the direction of the DSFA. New initiatives for 2014 include: added educational programming, increased outreach and education to the medical community and in our schools, improved communication to our members of upcoming events and the overall direction/goals of the DSFA, new fundraising events, etc.
Our success in 2013 would not have been possible without the dedication of our families and members, as well as the numerous volunteers that step forward to help with events. Both participation and constructive input from our members are also critical in our ability to meet the goals of our mission, as well as the overall success of the DSFA. With this, we need you, your family, your friends, and your contacts in the community, churches, and schools, to get involved. Attached, you will find a list of volunteer opportunities and committees that need dedicated individuals to help take DSFA to the next level! Please thoughtfully consider how your skills and talents might best fit the needs of DSFA, as well as pass this along to those in your life that might also be interested in getting involved!
Thank you, again, for all that you do to make a difference and to help us meet our mission of enriching the lives of people affected by Down Syndrome.
The DSFA of Greenville Board of Directors
