In effort to continue their monthly charitable works, students with disabilities who work every morning in the school’s Coffee Shop, made tie-dye bandannas for Autism Awareness month.  Students will sell the tie-dyed bandannas during Coffee Shop hours for $3 each during the month of April.

The students were finally able to donate $100 from their proceeds yesterday to the Autism Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support to families of children with Autism and works to create awareness of the disorder.  Autism is a mental condition that affects social skills and communication.

“I liked trying it and making new friends and putting pink and yellow into the shirt,” coffee shop student worker Robin Jacobs said.

Tie-dye bandanas for Autism Awareness follows last month’s tie-dye sock project for Down Syndrome Awareness where students also raised money to donate as charity.

According to teacher and sponsor Cheryl Taylor, these projects are important because they allow special needs students to practice valuable skills and to interact with others.
