Yearly Halloween Treats revamped due to COVID-19

boxed up and ready for delivery!
Cedarville's Teachers greatly appreciated their goodie bag!

Every year Abilities Unlimited collects pocket change in order to buy school supplies for local special education and kindergarten classes. These supplies normally get divided up and passed out by our clients at halloween time. It has been a great joy to visit these classes while dressed in costumes. However this year Covid-19 has thrown a curve ball that has disrupted everyone’s daily lives. This year instead of passing out goodie bags full of school supplies Abilities Unlimited was able to bless those teachers we would normally visit with some gift cards to spend on their classrooms.
