|Adult Services Camping and hiking trip 2015|
On behalf of everyone at Abilities United, and particularly the campers, we thank the community for their outpouring of support to replace the camping equipment that was stolen from Abilities United in early April. What started out as a sad and unfortunate event turned into an inspiring rally of support from our broader Bay Area community. We also want to thank the media who reported on this story in such a compelling way that these dozens of people came forward with cash and inkind donations.
- $10,000+ in cash donations as of Monday April 18, from 30 donors
- Donation amounts ranged from $10 to $2,000
- In kind donations of tents, sleeping bags and pads, camping stoves and lanterns, and other camping items from 7 donors
- New donors from as far north as Napa, as far east as Danville, and as far south as Hollister, and many points in between!
- Existing donors including Palo Alto Rotary, Palo Alto Kiwanis, Palo Alto Community Foundation, and individual friends
