The sasi Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce three funding awards, totaling more than $7,000, for the third quarter of 2017.
The Board approved Heiler Road IRA’s request for a concrete pad and emergency egress sidewalk in an amount of $5,360. The men at the Heiler residence enjoy sitting outside in the backyard and having cookouts, and the current deck is in disrepair.
The Board also approved the MSC department’s request to purchase two air conditioning units for an individual with a seizure disorder, in an amount not to exceed $600. The air conditioners will reduce heat induced seizure activity and keep him comfortable after a seizure.
Additionally, the Board approved the MSC department’s request to purchase a seizure alarm for an individual with a seizure disorder, in an amount not to exceed $1500. The alarm would alert his grandmother/respite providers of seizure activity, allow for reduced supervision, and increase the likelihood of him receiving respite services.
