Giving Tuesday


Giving Tuesday

Please help us re-plaster our pool

Dear Friend,

As we reflect on all that we are thankful for this season, we are reminded of how grateful we are to have the support of friends like you!

Each year, our warm pools provide rehabilitation and wellness to over 1500 children with special needs, the elderly and people with disabilities. Our warm pools are credited in helping many people to improve their health.

Our clients experience a wealth of positive benefits from our warm pools - improving their physical, mental and social well-being. We can't thank our patrons enough for their support...and we hope that on Giving Tuesday, each of you will make a donation for a critical need at the Pools of Hope!

Our organization needs to re-plaster our pool. Our goal is to raise $35,000 and 100% of your donation will go towards this project!

"My arthritis has greatly improved from swimming in your beautifully warm water. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Pools of Hope for the warm water services provided to people with disabilities and seniors like me. I just don't know how to thank you enough for such a great service to the community." - Carrie

Your contribution will help to improve the health of Carrie and many others like her, including children with developmental disabilities, veterans, and our aging neighbors, who use our pools for rehabilitation, exercise, and swimming to live their best life.

Why Aquatic Therapy?
