Thank you for helping us raise almost $70,000 during our 13th Annual Auction: Spring Break in the 70′s! We are thankful for your support in helping us purchase TWO new vehicles to allow our clients more opportunities for community integration.  (Pictured below are two clients on their way to a computer class at Carl Sandburg College in front of the first van we were able to purchase. We’re also very excited about our brand new 2019 Ford Transit, which arrived in early December). Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!

Because of your support in previous auctions…

2015: What was once a tattered and old lunchroom has been completely transformed into a warm, welcoming space where clients can enjoy a meal with their friends! “Festive Fridays” happen frequently in this space, too – themed parties once a month full of lots of activities!

2016: A covered walkway has been put up so that our clients can be protected from the elements as they come in and out of our building. During a winter snowstorm in April, one client commented, “As you can see, it’s doing job!”

2017: In 2017, funds were raised to renovate our Seniors Unit. New paint, new floors, new ceiling…this unit got the works! Two clients from the Seniors Unit were asked to participate in the ribbon cutting to reopen their renovated unit. One of these clients has been with us since KCCDD opened as a school in the 1950′s, and the other is an original member of when the Seniors Unit first opened! As clients were getting settled into their new space, one cried a few tears of joy because she was so delighted.





We would like to thank the Galesburg community and all of our generous sponsors and donors who continue to support our mission and make moments like these possible!
