Park Lawn Angel Fund
The Angel Fund at Park Lawn exists to provide clothing, Braille books, wheelchairs and more for Park Lawn residents with little to no family involvement.
It began in 1994 by Park Lawn Residential Director Ellie Crumback. Since that time hundreds of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have benefit from the generosity of supporting angels. No request has ever been turned away.
It was originally planned to only be a holiday program so each resident receives a gift to open on Christmas morning. However, due to the rise in aging individuals with special needs that have little to no family, the Angel Program will accept all donations year round. This will ensure that these residents receive clothing for all seasons, new books and the necessities in life that occur throughout the year.
If it were not for the Angel Fund, some of those who benefit might be homeless, scared and alone with no resources on how to overcome their disabilities. This program follows Park Lawn’s mission to provide services that promote independence, choice and access to community living.
Please contact Ellie Crumback or Debbie Hubbartt at (708) 396-1117 if you are interested in giving a gift or monetary donation to Park Lawn Association on behalf of the Angel Fund.
