Anaheim, CA – On May 30th, Dayle McIntosh Center for the Disabled (DMC) will partner with the Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF) and seven fellow nonprofits to host the second annual Empowering Possibilities, Giving Day for OC neighbors with disabilities.

The eight organizations participating in Empowering Possibilities include Dayle McIntosh Center, Down Syndrome Association of Orange County, Family Support Network, Free Wheelchair Mission, Project Independence, Speech and Language Development Center, United Cerebral Palsy Association of Orange County and Vocational Visions.
Empowering Possibilities is part of a bold initiative by OCCF to boost the capacity of local nonprofits through a series of Collaborative Giving Days over the coming year. Nonprofits with shared missions are invited to come together to boost collective giving for their causes. “We are excited to continue empowering aligned nonprofits to work together to maximize their impact,” said Shelley Hoss, president, OCCF.
“Each of us knows someone with a disability – a friend, a family member, a coworker, a neighbor. Your donation to Empowering Possibilities is a statement of your support and belief that quality services should be available when needed.” Paula Margeson, Director, Dayle McIntosh Center
