Winter Holiday Party - RSVP HERE for the 2011 Party

Winter Holiday party

Join UPS for DownS families as we celebrate the holidays with song, food and even a special surprise visit from Santa himself. Our annual Holiday Party has evolved from just a small get together into a grand banquet of flavorful food.  Enjoy an old fashioned pot luck luncheon as each family brings a dish. UPS for DownS provides the main course and beverages.  Santa calls upon each family and makes sure that those little one’s get the gift they are longing for.

This is a great opportunity to meet and greet other families. Our holiday party is held on the second Sunday in December from 10:30 AM – 2:30 PM.  You MUST RSVP for your child to receive a gift!

Do you like to shop? Maybe you would like to help Santa’s elves gather gifts for all the children. This is done on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Mark your calendars now. For specific information on location and times email info@upsfordowns.org or call our office (847) 895-2100.

Do people with Down syndrome grow up?

Yes. In adulthood, many people with Down syndrome have jobs, go to college, live independently, and support their communities. People with Down syndrome bring to their jobs enthusiasm, reliability, and dedication.

Can I help my Friend?

Yes! Play with and talk to people with Down syndrome. If they are having trouble playing a game, give them time and a little extra help or ask them what game they would like to play. Be clear in what you are saying. Find out what your friend likes to do. Just hang out together and see what happens. You are more alike than you are different.
