With heavy hearts, we inform you of the passing of long-serving board member and friend, Dennis Read. Dennis passed away Friday, January 29.

Dennis served on the boards of People Incorporated and People Improving Communities and Neighborhoods (PICAN), for many years, including serving as Treasurer. Dennis was also a dedicated friend to the Diabetes Association Inc., raising funds to support Camp Jack through the Jack Rua Invitational event held annually at Crestwood Country Club.

When reflecting on Dennis, Meg Stirk, President and CEO, said, “It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dennis, our friend, Board Member, and longtime supporter. Dennis was a champion for Camp Jack’s children, and we are eternally grateful for his outstanding guidance and leadership. He will be greatly missed.”

Go to peopleincfr.org/donate/ and click on “2020 Giving Tree."

One of the holiday traditions at People Incorporated is the “Giving Tree.” Each year employees, our board, and community members would go to a tree set up at one of our sites and take an ornament that matched a child in our programs and then purchase a gift to be distributed to the families. This year, we cannot host the Giving Tree in the usual manner due to the pandemic, so we plan to support these deserving children through a virtual version of the Giving Tree. Will you help a child this year?

The Giving Tree allows us to reach those who need us most, especially during a uniquely difficult year. Thank you!

Today is World Diabetes Day and DAI is joining this day of awareness! We work throughout the year to help children and their families manage diabetes and access the resources they need to reduce the incidents of complications and lead long healthy lives.

We recognize the prevalence of diabetes in our local community and on a national level. According to the American Diabetes Association, 1.25 million Americans have type 1 diabetes and 40,000 people will be diagnosed this year.

Type 2 diabetes is even more common. To help you understand your risk for type 2 diabetes, the American Diabetes Association has created a risk assessment quiz. Visit the link and complete the quiz to better understand your risk for type 2 diabetes: https://www.diabetes.org/risk-test
