Once again, a hurricane has devastated homes, communities and families. And once again, PRC and Saltillo are reaching out to help.

Make a Donation

To assist those in the AAC community whose lives were upended, PRC and Saltillo have donated $10,000 to the United States Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (USSAAC) Disaster Relief Fund. In addition, to help maximize their efforts, for every dollar you contribute the companies will match your gift, up to an additional $10,000.

You can make your donation online at the USSAAC website.

Assisting AAC Users in Need

USSAAC’s Disaster Relief Committee is ready to assist those who use AAC and have been affected by Hurricane Florence and the associated flooding, if they have lost or damaged AAC. If you have been affected and need their assistance, please register at aacdisasterrelief@recovers.org.
