Get involved this Earth Day with Lifetime Networks’ donation drive!
Lifetime Networks invites you to celebrate Earth Day by removing thousands of kilos of used clothing, small household items and refundable drink containers from the environment.
We will accept clothing, small household items and bottle donations through its recycling program and turn them into money to support more participants at Lifetime Networks.
Thank you to our participants, staff, volunteers and generous community for supporting Lifetime Networks with our first Annual Earth Day Donation drive for 2018!!
On April 22nd 2018, Lifetime Networks was able to save over 10,000 pounds of clothing, household items, and refundable containers from our landfills.
In addition to helping our planet, these donations will also help Lifetime Networks continue to support more members of our community, with over $3000 raised!
The DeviANTs are a self-named musical theatrical comedy troupe that rose out of Lifetime Network’s Drama Club program. Featuring adult artists with developmental disabilities, they have been creating and performing for the last 2 years and will present completely original songs and sketches created over the last 4 months.
Most recently, the DeviANTs performed as a majority of the cast of “The Great Big Show” at the McPherson Theatre in February 2018. The show was an enormous hit, selling over 1000 tickets and changing audience’s perceptions of people with diversabilities.
The DeviANTs performances continue this June 2018 with The DeviANTs Spring Concert which contains 20 completely new, never before seen pieces!
Songs include “I’m On Fire, Everything is Better With Friends, The Middle Finger Song, Extra Special Beautiful Girl, Hornets Rats and Otters, Fall in Love, & Piranhas in the Pool”.
