I work for Volunteer New York!, a nonprofit that helps connect volunteers to the local nonprofits that need them, and I LOVE sending volunteers to GiGi's Playhouse Westchester! Whether they're helping with one of the recreational programs or logging online as a literacy or math tutor, our volunteers and corporate teams always come back with the best stories about their experience. Thank you GiGi's Playhouse for doing such great work in raising awareness about Down syndrome and allowing our community members to take part in brightening the lives of young people with Down syndrome!
.We are changing the way the world views Down syndrome. This is a magical place where visions and dreams become a reality for Individuals with down syndrome their families and the community.
I LOVE Gigi’s Playhouse! I started volunteering at Gigi’s about three months ago and it is one of the happiest places I have ever been. I thought I was going to be “giving” when I spent time there but instead I am “getting”. The kids and adults I have met at Gigi’s seem to know what’s really important in life. It is a very uplifting place to be. I can’t recommend it highly enough, both for the families that have a family member with Down’s syndrome and for the volunteers. Go Gigi’s!
I am honored to be a part of this amazing organization. GiGi's offers many purposeful programming for individuals with Down syndrome from birth on up. Our vision is to see a world where individuals with Down syndrome are accepted and embraced in their families, schools and communities. Our mission is to change the way the world views Down syndrome through national campaigns, educational programs, and by empowering individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. Did I mention that every program is FREE to all participants. We couldn't do this without our dedicated and amazing volunteers and donors. Please consider a gift to GiGi's Playhouse Westchester today. Thank you. Debbie Young, Site Coordinator
