March of Dimes Door -to-Door Campaign

It's January again, and that is March of Dimes month.  You may be getting a knock on your door and a volunteer asking for donations for this worthy charity.  The March of Dimes supports people with disabilities by assisting them to live independent lives.  They have a program that offers custom-built solutions and modifications for everyday challenges at home.  They assist people with polio and stroke recovery.  They provide employment services to help overcome employment barriers and prepare for a return to the workplace after a serious illness or injury.  This is only a partial list the wonderful services they provide.




This organization began during the polio outbreaks of the 1940's and 50's with concerned Mom's going door-to door collecting dimes, and that is how the name came to be.  We appreciate any donation, large or small, that you can make.  i have been the area captain for a part of Nottawa for  the past few years, and want to thank the volunteers that continue to participate year after year.




January can be a very unfriendly time to be outdoors.  Please remember, if you get a knock on your door, that these are people who are giving of their time to trudge through the snow and ice and cold.  Even if you cannot make a donation this year, please treat them with respect and a smile.  They deserve it.
