Wichita Association of the Deaf's First Solar Fundraiser by Online

Hi, my name is Maddy Starks.  I am the fundraising chair for the Wichita Association of the Deaf (WAD).   In May 2016, we installed new solar panels on the roof of our WAD building.   We are striving to pay off the balance by June 1, 2021, which is still our goal.   

It was supposed to help reduce electricity bills, but when the pandemic hit last year; it affected us negatively.   Due to the WAD temporary closing in early 2020, we had to dip into our savings just to keep the WAD stay afloat.   Even after reopening last summer, the attendance was very low that we were able to raise very little money.   We feel we are holding on by a thread, and would not ask for this money if the pandemic didn't happen.

2020 has been a difficult year for WAD due to an unexpected pandemic.   Just a small donation of $10, $20, or perhaps $50 can help make a dent in the balance faster before June 1st.   Anything that you can provide would be greatly appreciated!   Your donation will go toward Solar panels balance only.  Every dollar counts!

Thank you for keeping our deaf community together.     WAD is a not-for-profit organization under 501(c)(3).
