Autism Awareness month concluded with members and supporters of Local 290 attending the annual POAC (Parents Of Autistic Children) Walk in Sewaren today. There we were able to sell some of our remaining t-shirts to promote awareness and to raise money for POAC. This we raised more than $2,000 for the group. The members are proud to have shown our support and we are glad to see the funds go to a worthy cause. Keep up the great work POAC!!!
The members of Local 290 will be sporting these shirts all throughout April to boost Awareness of Autism in our communities. These shirts are also available for sale to the general public. If interested, please contact Bob Paul via phone or email. His information is on the image. All proceeds will go to support the Parents Of Autistic Children (POAC). POAC has played a vital role in the community training teachers, first responders, administrators, paraprofessionals and most importantly, the parents themselves.
