An update for our loyal supporters: PARCA’s 2022 Devil’s Slide Ride Is Cancelled.
While the past two years have stretched our staff capacity to the limit, we are overjoyed that the 1,000 people with developmental disabilities and their families that we serve are well, safe, and thriving.
However, our Board and PARCA management had to take a realistic look at our ability to produce these events this year. Our dedicated staff has been working overtime since the shutdown, and are stretched thin. It takes about a hundred additional volunteers to put on our event and COVID is still a deterrent to recruiting them, and keeping our client volunteers, many of whom have compromised immune systems, safe. We explored scaling down the events, but we’d actually lose money by doing so.
We have not yet made any decisions about events next year. We have learned to expect the unexpected and adapt quickly.
We will keep you posted and hope that you will support us in the future.
Thank you for your past support of our events and for helping people with developmental disabilities!
