Omaha, Nebraska – The Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands (DSAM) is making an earnest appeal to the public, expressing a dire need for volunteers for their annual camp.
Every year, DSAM collaborates with the Pediatric Therapy Center and Autism Society Nebraska to host the ‘iCan Bike’ camp, an enriching event held at the College of St. Mary. According to the organizers, the camp hosts 40 special-needs children, necessitating the participation of approximately 160 volunteers for smooth operation.
Danielle Thiessen, a representative from the Pediatric Therapy Center, expressed that community involvement is critical for the success of the camp. “Summer schedules may be hectic, but we assure you that devoting 75 minutes of your day to our cause is completely worth it. The experience is tremendously rewarding and fulfilling. You will certainly walk away enriched from your time spent with us,” remarked Thiessen.
The call for volunteers is particularly urgent for the camp’s third session, which is currently facing a significant shortfall of helpers. Individuals interested in contributing their time and service to the ‘iCan Bike’ camp can register to volunteer by following the provided link.
