As you may know, for a number of years our son Ari has participated in programs put on by a local nonprofit called The Friendship Circle. Friendship Circle brings together kids with special needs like Ari and teen volunteers who want to make a difference. Kids with special needs and teen volunteers all benefit from Friendship Circle: volunteers learn emotional maturity, responsibility and compassion, while special children learn social skills and experience acceptance and individualized attention. This year they added a new program special for young adults like Ari called the Young Adults Circle. This enables young adults with special needs to spend time in a fun social setting with people in their age range. Ari has really been enjoying it.
On Sunday, May 5th Ari, Mindy and I will be walking in the 7th annual Friendship Circle WalkWithFC 2019 We would be so touched if you and your family would be able to sponsor us and help us meet our fundraising goal of $2,500, which will go towards helping the Friendship Circle accommodate many more special children, teens and young adults with special needs and community volunteers. If you would like to sponsor us, please click on the link below and you will be doing more than you know to help bring smiles to the faces of some very special children in our community.
Sam, Mindy and Ari
