Happy 15th Birthday Wellspring!

February 25th is Wellspring’s Birthday! We’re turning 15 this year!! This is too big of a milestone to only celebrate for one day—so we’ll be celebrating all year long where we have come from while also looking forward to where we are going. 

Here are some fun facts! Since we opened our doors in 2008: 

  • We have had 4 addresses 
  • We have grown from 3 STARS to now 60 STARS per day 
  • We have provided approximately 3,600 days of programming

This next week, help us celebrate by wearing your Wellspring swag and sharing a photo on social media (be sure to tag it #Wellspring15).  Be sure to check back often—we’re going to have some fun next week. 

Enjoy some of these throwback photos from our early days. 

Save the Date

Save the date for Saturday, May 20th for Wellspring’s Spring fundraising event that will strike up a lot of fun! More information coming soon.

Donor Survey

Wellspring would not be the organization it is today without those who have financially supported the work of empowering lives of adults with I/DD! To our donors and champions, THANK YOU. We’d love to know more about your experience with Wellspring and areas where we can improve. Please spend about 12 minutes to complete this anonymous survey and if you choose- be entered in a raffle to win hand made products crafted by World Orphans‘ artisans.

Important Dates

Wellpring Online Store - Extended!

Want to get your hands on some Wellspring swag? You’re in luck- the deadline to order has been extended to Friday, February 17th. Soon after the store closes, all items will be delivered to Wellspring’s main location (826 Park St.) for pick up. The best part? $5 from every item sold is donated back to Wellspring- meaning your purchase directly impacts the lives of adults experiencing I/DD!

Though our in-person programming will not be meeting, the Wellspring Online team will be hosting two classes; Coloring Café and President’s Day Party open to all Wellspring STARS.

Calling all Wellspring Families, your feedback is important! If you have not already, please take a few minutes to complete the Family Survey before it closes on Friday, February 17th.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Gayle Bell.
