The most recent statistic from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that 1 in 68 children have autism. That staggering statistic emphasizes how important it is that the central Illinois community becomes aware of the difficulties of living with autism. The Autism Society of McLean County provides imperative programming to people of all ages living with autism and families whose lives are affected by autism.
April is Autism Awareness month and the Autism Society of McLean County (ASMC) has planned a month packed full of events to raise awareness about autism. Also, look for our Autism Awareness Electronic Billboards on Veterans Parkway!
The Autism Society of McLean County is an all volunteer based group that strives to educate the central Illinois area about autism and fund programs that better the lives of individuals and families of those with autism. For more information, contact email@example.com.
We have a new membership sign up, if you’re membership is expired or you haven’t joined ASMC , please view the benefits of being a member and consider joining us. Events like movies and Children’s Discovery Museum are often free for our members.
The Starplex hosts a sensory friendly movie monthly for children who might be overstimulated attending a typical movie experience. Starplex turns the lights up and the sound down so the movie is more enjoyable for children that can not handle or do not enjoy all that stimulation. Children are free to walk around and vocalize during the movie.
Special screenings will happen the 2nd Saturday of each month.
The garage sale will be on Saturday, April 5th, 2014 from 7:00a to 2:30p @ the Crossroads Center, 310 Wylie Drive, Suite 466, Normal, IL (near Farm & Fleet and next to Wehrenberg Theaters)
The garage sale itself will be a “name your own price” garage sale – no listed prices. The goal is to sell each and every item.
All unsold donated items will be given to the Mission Mart, Home Sweet Home, ReStore, etc.
Here’s how you can help:
Donate garage-sale worthy items for the garage sale. If you’re interested in donating in advance of the garage sale please contact Craig Luchtefeld, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 309-319-6006. The more items donated, the more money we can raise, and the more kids we can send to camp!
We will have early drop-off on the following dates/times at the garage sale location:
Monday, March 31st from 5:00p – 7:00p
Wednesday, April 2nd from 5:00p – 7:00p
Friday, April 4th from 5:00p – 7:00p
We’ll have volunteers to help unload and sort your items.
If you have items you’d like to donate but cannot make one of the early drop-off dates, please contact Craig Luchtefeld at email@example.com or 309-319-6006 and we’ll work out a time to retrieve your items.
If you’d like to volunteer to help unload or sort items at any one of the early drop-off times, we’d very much appreciate the help! You can register to volunteer here: http://doodle.com/hemwtziybp5rw9kd.
If you’d like to make a monetary donation in lieu of donating garage sale items, we’d welcome the donation!
So, please, help us get the word out for this fundraising event and do some garage sale-ing!
