CPD main office window with paper hearts on it

The window of the CPD’s Main Office is filling up with paper hearts! Each heart indicates the sale of one special Valentine, handmade by Developmental Skills Lab participants in preparation for Valentine’s Day on Friday.

A $10 donation brings you a handmade, personalized Valentine. That same $10 donation provides two hours of respite care for a person with a disability and their loved ones. Respite care at the DSL means caregivers are able to leave their loved ones in a safe, stimulating environment while they run errands, enjoy a long, quiet walk or indulge in a worry-free and well-deserved nap.

If you buy four Valentines for $40—that’s a whole day of respite care—we’ll throw in a fifth Valentine as a thank you. Valentines can be personalized with names and/or a special message for your loved one.

To order your handmade Valentines, visit Shane Johnson at the CPD or Drake Rasmussen at the DSL (857 N 800 E) and pre-pay with cash or check before 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11. You can pick up your Valentines at the same location between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Valentine’s Day. If you have an office on campus, we’d be happy to deliver them to you on Friday.

(Want to know how much respite care is being funded by the sale of Valentines? You’ll see a paper heart in the window of the CPD’s main office for every Valentine sold).
