Brothers and Sisters,
This week, the Local 7 Retiree Association was pleased to donate over $8,000, raised from this year’s golf tournament, to the Boston Higashi School for Autistic Children.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. According to the CDC, autism affects an estimated 1 in 44 children in the United States.
The Boston Higashi School’s mission is to help children and young adults with ASD learn to reach their full potential by providing a broad curriculum that includes academics, art, music, physical education, technology, and social education.
We thank you for your donations this year and for your ongoing dedication to our community!
