Bringing 2020 to a Close at Six Points

Six Points Exercise

SPIRIT CLUB

Six Points purchased a membership to Spirit Club, a web-based exercise program geared specifically to people with disabilities.  Trainers demonstrate adaptive poses and alternate ways to do yoga, Zumba, cardio fitness, and meditation.  Staff help clients access the online classes on-site or at home.

Several clients have also been out cross country skiing this season. While maintaining social distance and wearing masks, clients are still able to enjoy the wonders of winter!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
I know I am not alone in saying that it is a bit of a relief to welcome in 2021. What a year it has been! Here at Six Points, our challenge has been continuing to provide quality services to our clients while keeping clients and staff safe from contracting COVID. That is easier said than done when our services are provided in person! However, the collaboration between our clients and service providers is amazing. Working together and following the guidelines, they were able to keep everyone safe.
There were good things to come out of this year:

  • Our talented service providers truly went above and beyond to think “outside the box” and find creative ways to serve our clients.
  • With some incredibly generous in-kind donations and community support, we were able to create a safer parking area for our employees.
  • Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding enabled us to keep all of our employees.
  • Thanks to all who came out in costume for our Halloween Fun Run! Proceeds from the event went to the Recreation Fund.
  • The Thrift Store continues to thrive thanks to the generosity of the community, and to provide much needed revenue for client programs.
  • We also had an overwhelming donation response to our holiday letter. Every donation, of every size, makes a great difference in our ability to serve our clients.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy, healthy New Year! Thank you again for all of your support and I look forward to a great year in 2021.
