Thank you for taking a moment to learn more about our Plug In and Connect campaign!

Please Donate NOW.

We are raising money to purchase an HDTV and electronic equipment for our Community Center. These items will allow us to have events and activities such as meetings (Skype and Google Hangouts), workshops with video, movie nights, festivals, guest speakers, and presentations. In addition, these items will enrich our physical and social well being with game nights and exercise classes utilizing the Wii system. 

With your generous donation we can create the following possibilties and much more:

  • Movie Nights and Film Festivals: The smell of popcorn wafts through the room while a group of 25 sit theater-style, munching and crunching on snacks , slurping their sodas, and laughing at the funny scene on the new HDTV. 
  • Volunteers: Volunteers are brainstorming their next  RDC event, their thoughts captured electronically on the big screen TV while they devour pepperoni pizza and laugh and share funny captions and pics they have seen on the Internet.
  • Educational Events: A group gathers to hear a local health professional speak about Transgender health issues, concerns, and resources. They utilize our new multimedia equipment to show relevant film clips and a power point presentation. The audience is excited and wants to know more. A lively discussion follows.
  • Bowling and Game Tournaments: A group of seniors are laughing, joking with one another, moving their bodies this way and that as they try to direct their bowling ball into position for a strike. Hoping to beat their personal best score, two teams compete for a small prize awarded at the end of the event.
  • Funding received from this campaign will be used exclusively to purchase the following items:

                 60-70" Smart, Internet HDTV

                 Blu-Ray Player
