Respite care, recreational and social activities, camps, informational meetings, these are just a few of the many services that the Special Persons Advocacy Network (SPAN) offers to our citizens with mental retardation or developmental disabilities.
The funding that SPAN receives from the Heart of Kentucky United Way makes this a reality for our members. Without the United Way's generosity and the generosity of those who give, our members would not be able to participate actively in the community.
As chairman of SPAN, I want to say thank you for caring and giving of your resources. Your generous contributions do make a difference in the lives of some very special people.
