Thank you to those who have donated to the #ProtectAchieva campaign! YOU have helped to secure over 25,000 pieces of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect people with disabilities and Achieva Staff. Because of you, Achieva can continue serving the people we support and the direct support professionals that work alongside them every day.
A special thank you to both the McDowell Family Fund of the Pittsburgh Foundation and Achieva Board Chair Mary Richter and husband Bill, for their generous challenge grants of $10,000 and $2,500 respectively. Because of your support, Achieva was able to secure the full match for both challenge grants!
As we’ve all learned more about how easy it is for COVID-19 to spread, and the devastation that’s possible for people with underlying medical conditions, Achieva will continue to build its inventory of PPE in anticipation of additional challenges from this pandemic in the upcoming months ahead. In doing so, unbudgeted expenses for PPE will continue to mount and we must work to absorb the cost of this life-saving protective equipment. Achieva has established an updated goal of $90,000 and we continue to ask for your support in keeping people with disabilities and our valued Direct Support Professionals safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.
