April is Autism Awareness Month!
If you type “Autism” in the top of this blog’s search bar, you’ll find all sorts of helpful resources for parents with children that are autistic. For this month we are looking for your contributions on the subject! If you are a trainer, staff person or parent working or living with someone with Autism or hosting / know of a community event supporting awareness for this month, please submit your story or the information (please include photos, logos, or flyers you want included as well as your Twitter handle if available) and we will share it free of charge for the month of April! Email all submissions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Since we’re at the start of a new school year, I wanted to share with you a piece of information that is a great way for anybody to get involved and support the schools in our communities! Stop & Shop stores (primarily located in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island) offer an A+ School Rewards program and it’s open to all schools.
It doesn’t cost you anything, all you have to do is go online to http://www.stopandshop.com/aplus and register your rewards card to the school of your choice. Even if you don’t have school age children, you can still support the school of your choice and hopefully will consider supporting a school in a district where there may be less participants. All schools have faced major blows to their budgets and every time you use your card to do regular grocery shopping, you earn points that Stop and Shop turns into cash for our schools. Schools can use the cash to buy anything that they need (i.e. computers, books, art supplies, gym supplies, etc.). This is a very simple way to make a huge difference in the schools in our communities! Don’t just keep this information for yourself, encourage friends, family members, churches, and other local organizations to get involved!
If you don’t have a Stop and Shop in your State, but know of another grocery retailer that is offering a similar program, email us at email@example.com with all the details and we will blog it at no charge!
If there is something great going on to empower your community (regardless of Country or State) email us the details & we’ll share it at no charge!
