Please join me in supporting the 6th annual GIANT Steps Autism Preschool Charity Dinner and Auction held at the Lavell Edwards Stadium Cougar Room on March 28th 2015 from 6:00 – 8:00pm. The organizers are looking for both donations for the auction and table sponsorships.
GIANT Steps Autism Preschool is a day-treatment program for preschool-aged children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder and they need our help raising money so they can serve more kids.
This year, GIANT Steps will be able to add one more classroom to provide services to twelve more children and families. However there are currently over 100 children on the GIANT Steps waiting list which means most children will have to wait two years to get into the program. This also means that children who are diagnosed later than 24 months old have little chance to benefit from this remarkable program.
Friends of GIANT Steps is a nonprofit organization that supports GIANT Steps Autism Preschool. Most of the members on the board are current or past parents. We work closely with GIANT Steps to help support the staff and teachers in the needs that they have.
