Broadmead Care’s Shred-a-Thon raises $12,000 for Nigel House!
Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday, April 29 at Broadmead Care’s Shred-a-Thon event. Thanks to SO MANY caring members of our community … $12,000 was raised to help support the people who live at Nigel House.
We cannot say thank you enough to everyone who made this possible. To our volunteers, our sponsors, donors, and everyone who came out to the event thank you! A very special thank you to Best Shredding for making it all possible.
Thank you for helping the people who call Nigel House home.
Funds raised through this event will provide vital funding for private companion services for the residents of Nigel House. Nigel residents are younger adults with complex medical conditions and disabilities. One of the challenges facing this population is that many require a companion to accompany them to appointments with medical specialists such as neurologists, psychiatrists, nephrologists, or dentists. Although volunteers and staff assist as much as possible, the volume of companion services needed outweighs our ability to help. Medical companion services cost about $38 per hour; many residents require between 2 and 16 hours per month.
