April 2nd was World Autism Awareness Day. April is Autism Awareness month. These are important events, but caring for children/teens/young adults with autism/special needs is year round. Serving our population is only possible with amazing supporters who continue to inspire us as we continue our pledge to provide programming for the autism/special needs community. We have a once in a lifetime hike by one of our supporters, our 2nd comedy night featuring Manhattan's top comedians, a fashion show featuring SNACK models, and a vertical garden maintained by our 21+ team, and an updated website! Keep reading to find out how you can help.
Erin and Peggy have organized a 59 mile "Hike for Hope" from April 18th-23rd in Joshua Tree National Park to raise funds for SNACK*!

SNACK's Vertical Garden is sprouting! At our annual fundraiser, many of our supporters bought a cubby with a plant that our autism/special needs program members planted. Our program members planted the seeds in March and they're finally sprouting! We'll be harvesting the spices later this spring and using them in our cooking class. There's still room to buy a plant!
