AID aims to raise $125K at telethon
SUGAR GROVE – The list of people waiting for services from the Association for Individual Development has grown to more than 1,250, and AID leaders hope a telethon will raise enough money to serve them.
AID already serves 5,000 people in Kane and Kendall counties, providing assistance to those with developmental disabilities and mental illnesses. It also assists those in crisis, said Kathy Hazelwood, vice president of marketing and development for AID.
The organization’s goal is to raise $125,000 at its 14th annual telethon Saturday. The event will be in the auditorium at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove. Hazelwood said 90 cents out of every dollar raised during the telethon – the group’s biggest fundraiser of the year – goes toward providing programs and services to those in need. Services and programs range from providing transportation and behavior health to housing and crisis intervention.
