United Cerebral Palsy Casual Day Approaches

Diane Dietrich, Director of Development, United Cerebral Palsy, writes:

Casual Day is approaching and we are excited about so many of you taking the lead in telling your employees how they can help UCP and the families we serve.

Please remember to tell your employees that we serve people with ALL disabilities (not just cerebral palsy) all over Tennessee.

The requests we get for building wheelchair ramps, for medical equipment, for home modifications, and for information and referral are only increasing.  We help families when they have a child that has just been diagnosed with a disability, elderly people who are trying to remain independent, and people in between who have little or no insurance to provide what they need.

For instance, these items are considered “Luxury Items” by insurance companies:  wheelchair ramps, van lifts, and yes, even bath benches!

Our wonderful sponsors are responsible for making Casual Day an event with impact for people with disabilities:
