Upcoming Spring Philanthropy Events to Support IDD Individuals

We love supporting our agency partners and those who continually serve, care and funnel resources into the intellectual and developmental disability community. Your staff members, nurses, and Direct Support Professionals make a difference in these people’s lives, and we are here to support you because you and your residents matter!

It’s a great pleasure to share two of our agency partners’ upcoming philanthropy events. We want to help get the word out and raise awareness as these organizations continue to do great work.

Life’s Worc 50th Anniversary Celebration Gala 


We are grateful to celebrate one of our agency partners, Life’s Worc, as they commemorate 50 years of supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Life’s Worc “Celebrate 50” is a year-long acknowledgment of this organization’s proud past and a commitment to a promising tomorrow. A gala event will take place on Friday, April 1, to honor Life’s WORC’s history and the journey that has truly just begun. The event will also honor Victoria Schneps-Yunis, Life’s WORC Founder, and Geraldo Rivera.

To learn more about this annual celebration and the gala event, please visit Life’s Worc Celebrate 50 event page.

Let’s Leap for Autism!

 Hudson Regional LTC Pharmacy’s CEO, Angelo Angerame, will suit up to take another Leap for Autism in May! Last year, the HRLTCP team participated in this event, and we were thrilled to see more than $67,000 raised to help support Greystone Programs, Inc. 

Greystone Programs has a goal of raising $85,000 this year to provide life-enriching programs to children, adults, and families with Autism and other developmental disabilities. Whether you want to be a champion for Autism in the air, from the ground, as a tandem, or virtual skydiver, you can have an exhilarating adventure of a lifetime while giving back to and raising awareness for a great cause. Learn more by visiting, the Leap For Autism event page.
