NIAGARA COMMUNITY MEMBER HELPS INTANDEM
Local Girl Scout, Julia Wasley, just completed her Gold Award service project she
entitled “Craft Cupboard for Intandem” and donated her entire project to
individuals with disabilities who attend the day habilitation programs at Intandem
in Niagara County.
Julia spent over two years compiling her project, which included organizing
instructional binders and flash drives with detailed directions for numerous
crafting projects, as well as gathering a large assortment of yarn, holiday
decorations, and various other crafting supplies. She collected the supplies by
soliciting donations from many companies, including 3M and Scotch.
Julia, who recently began her freshman year at Niagara University, dedicated her
project to her aunt Lyla, who attends the Day Habilitation Program at Intandem in
Larry Sorokes, Chief Development Officer at Intandem, expressed appreciation on
behalf of the agency. “We are very grateful to Julia for all of the time and effort
she put into this donation, as well as the many local people who contributed to her
project. Since many of the individuals we support are currently homebound and
unable to be out in the community, her gift is especially timely. We will begin
sharing these crafting projects and supplies throughout our programs
Pictured below is Julia and her aunt, displaying her recent donation, which was
received at Intandem’s Day Services building at 2510 Niagara Falls Boulevard.
Thank you Julia!
