Our Latest Project: New Deck for Open Door Rehabilitation Center


Tommy’s Gift is in need of your support as we take on our next project of enhancing the quality of life of eight special needs residents with physical disabilities of the Open Door Rehabilitation Center in Sandwich, Illinois. Tommy’s Gift has committed to these individuals as well as this great organization to build a state-of-the-art, fully-accessible backyard retreat at the resident’s home. The design of this raised deck will dramatically increase the outdoor living space and accessibility for the resident’s, whom many are wheelchair-bound, and will allow them the ability to freely spend time outdoors in a safe and controlled environment.

Tommy’s Gift is extremely proud to partner with the Open Door Rehabilitation Center and fully support their efforts throughout our community in serving adults with developmental disabilities. Many individuals have benefited from the efforts of this non-profit organization and have enjoyed a sense of self-worth through independent living, training and employment. Tommy’s Gift is so very proud to help these brave residents and hopefully through our efforts bring them all more independence, more joy and by our efforts letting them know that as a society and a community, we care and support them.

We now ask you to help us help those in need. Please consider a financial contribution to this project so that we may purchase the necessary materials to build this outdoor retreat. Or if you have the talents necessary to help build this structure, please donate your time.
