City receives $25,000 in donations for Adult Community Choices program

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Two longtime participants generously donated a total of $25,000 to Shoreline’s Adult Community Choices program last month. Alice Akins and her sister Barbara Shafer donated $15,000 in the memory of their parents Winona and Bill Akins. Robert Timar and his mother Katherine (Kitty) Timar donated $10,000.

The donations are part of the proceeds from the sale of Libertee World, a non-profit group home for adults with disabilities started many years ago in Seattle. The City is grateful for Alice and Robert’s kind donations.

Adult Community Choices is a City of Shoreline Parks and Recreation program for adults with developmental disabilities. The program focuses on building friendships, community involvement, and life skills. Thirty participants attend the program Monday through Thursday from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The program also provides a daily opportunity for participants to take field trips around Shoreline and the greater Puget Sound region.

For more information about the Adult Community Choices program contact Recreation Coordinator Courtney Brown at 206-801-2635.
