Kangaroo Kids Child Care and Learning Center donated $3,322.39 to Autism Speaks, “Julia’s Hope!” Children enjoyed a special day with their families and friends supporting a very worthy cause.
Kangaroo Kids celebrated 25 years of being leaders in education at their family carnival. Community members, Kangaroo Kids families and teachers worked tirelessly to raise money through bake sales, Jean Days, and special events, culminating with a family carnival. There were games, food and activities for the whole family complete with a special visit from Sparky and hugs from Kanga the Kangaroo!
Families enjoyed a performance by the Robotics Team and Gifts from Dr. Oz and local sports teams. And, what carnival would be complete without pony rides and cotton candy.
According to Autism Speaks, Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the United States, affecting 1 in 68 children and costing families an average of $60,000 a year.
The Grand finale of Kangaroo Kids Family Carnival was to create a human puzzle piece in support of Autism Speaks!
