OMAK - Okanogan Middle School associated student body has donated $175 to Okanogan Behavioral HealthCare’s developmental disabilities program.

ASB President Hayden Swartsel presented a check to agency CEO David McClay during the May 22 Mental Health Month Color Walk in East Side Park.

“To have the developmental disabilities program selected for this donation is an honor and an inspiration,” said McClay. “When youth in our community choose to donate to a program serving people who are often marginalized, it demonstrates the compassion and interdependence that are integral parts of Okanogan County’s identity.”

The program oversees the Developmental Disabilities Administration adult day services for enrolled Okanogan County clients with physical, learning, language or behavioral impairments. The program contracts with qualified service providers for individual supported employment and community inclusions programs, and provides community education and information about developmental disabilities.
