Casual Day 2010

Casual Day is next month and we are working steadily to prepare everything for you. We have almost all of the items we need on hand and will try to get the packets out soon.

Thank you in advance for helping us serve people who need us and do not have other resources. And yes, we are helping the gentleman on the front page of the Tennessean! Because of that article, we have people who are calling to donate more medical equipment! A backward kind of blessing!

Our wonderful sponsors have stepped up to the plate to help make this Casual Day a good one for you and your employees:

AmSurg, Banana Boat, Belmont University Dept. of Theatre & Dance, Boyle Investment Company, Cassidy Turley, Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre, Chick-fil-A, 104.5 The Zone, 103 WKDF, CDL MediaWorks LLC, Hot Shot Delivery, Lipscomb University Theatre, Macy’s, Midtown Printing, Nashville Parent, Predator’s Announcers Pete Weber and Terry Crisp, RJ Young, Southeast Financial Credit Union, TN State Parks, and Vanderbilt Theatre.

Casual Day (or Casual Friday) has become such an accepted part of the business landscape that few people remember where it came from. Believe it or not, United Cerebral Palsy developed the original Casual Day in the early 90’s! In Middle Tennessee, we have celebrated UCP Casual Day since 1992. At the eightteen year mark, Casual Day has netted over half a million dollars to UCP throughout the years. 100% of these dollars have been used to provide direct services to persons with all types of disabilities in our community.

Help UCP provide services throughout TN for people with cerebral palsy, arthritis, autism, spina bifida, ALS, strokes, heart diseas, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, brain injuries, renal and kidney diseases, epilepsy…all types of physical disabilities.

UCP helps people with little or no insurance…people who fall through the cracks!

    UCP:

  • Builds wheelchair ramps across the entire state.
  • Provides re-cycled wheelchairs, walkers, bath aids, strollers, car seats, standers, etc.
  • Provide home modifications (like widening doorways or raising countertops).
  • Offers educational seminars.
  • Hosts a free weekly recreation program.
  • Helps everyone who calls with information and referral.
  • Provides holiday food boxes for the most needy families.
  • Offers assistance for "inclusion Summer Programs" for children.
