Anaheim, CA — In celebration of their forty-sixth birthday as Orange County’s only Independent Living Center for people with disabilities and older adults, The Dayle McIntosh Center (DMC) www.daylemc.org is taking their Attitude of Gratitude to the next level with a Giving Week Fundraiser November 20-28, 2023. The week-long fundraiser which ends on Giving Tuesday, benefits the organization’s Norma Gibbs Fund to support the organization’s plans to work toward their 2024 initiatives to meet a rapidly growing disability and aging community in need.

DMC’s Attitude of Gratitude fundraiser will be sharing stories of gratitude ahead of and during Giving Week to provide insight to the heart of service, purpose and how the impact has changed lives of consumers, partners and the team. Much of this appreciation comes from the organization’s deep roots and forty-six year history featured on DMC’s website where the organization was founded upon activism and advocacy from Founder, Dayle McIntosh and DMC’s original officers. The past is a link to DMC’s present stories sharing valuable insight and inclusion about the changes and evolution of the community to meet the ongoing needs of serving disabilities and older adults.

“With our Attitude of Gratitude fundraiser, we are intentionally seeking support to rejuvenate our Norma Gibbs fund, which is money we can use to support the disability and aging community in times of need when no other resources exist. As we navigate today’s challenges, we can draw inspiration from our founders, ensuring that the Dayle McIntosh Center remains a beacon of hope and support

for those who need it most. Gratitude is at the heart of the Dayle McIntosh Center for the Disabled. We cherish our consumers, whose resilience motivate us daily, our volunteers, who give selflessly, and our community partners, who walk alongside us in the journey towards inclusivity and empowerment.” states Brittany Zazueta, Executive Director at DMC.

To add another layer of gratitude to those who give to DMC, the Independent Living Center is grateful for all of the amazing community prize donors throughout the county. Qualifying cash donors will have a chance to be entered to win products, services, and ticketed entertainment experiences through an opportunity drawing.  The donor incentive features four prize opportunity drawing levels as a way to give back in gratitude.  Prizes include a chance to win everything from products, services, premium gift certificates and popular ticketed event experiences all over Orange County.  An additional fifth Grand Prize level of a one night, two-day Ranch Home getaway stay, an Oculus Virtual Reality System and Taco Sanchez Catering Party for up to 75 people will add to the excitement.
