Rock Your Socks


World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is March 21. It’s easy enough to participate, just stick your hand in your sock drawer and see what comes out. Bright and colorful socks, striped, mismatched, long – just as long as you’re making a statement. Together we will create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome in our schools, community and around the world. With your help, each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder.

People First Donates Gifts Baskets


February is the month of love. This February, People First, gathered supplies and donations to make beautiful gifts baskets. The baskets were created by People First members and supporters and were given to residents of the local nursing homes to boost morale. People First wanted residents to know that they are loved and cared for regardless of their placement. 

This is also a great time to join. People First is an advocacy group for individuals with all types of disabilities. They advocate for better services, to raise awareness, and to change laws at the local and state level. 

Meetings are held the 1st Tuesday of every month and TJP Educational Center. Dues are $2 a month or $24 a year.
