Shangri-La's Yellow Napkin Project aims to increase our community's disability allyship through education and awareness that leads to actions that promote a more accessible and inclusive community. 

Started in 2022 with just 2,500 napkins, the Yellow Napkin Project now distributes 20,000 napkins featuring five disability literacy messages during Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in March.

These messages were crafted using input from: 

  • individuals with disabilities served by Shangri-La

  • employees with disabilities working at Shangri-La

  • disability community allies, including Direct Support Professionals and family members of individuals with disabilities

Messages also echo the knowledge Shangri-La has learned from individuals with disabilities over the past 60 years of supporting this community.

The napkins are distributed by community partners, mainly food service establishments, who share the napkins with their customers.
