Charter House Gift
This year marked the 30th year that the Mayo Clinic’s Charter House retirement community held their annual sidewalk sale. This year ABC was among four nonprofits to receive a $2,000 gift.
The first item purchased was a swing for persons with sensory needs. Swinging has many benefits: building balance and coordination, boosting moods, calming people down, strengthening muscles and increasing focus.
The remaining funds will be used to purchase other sensory items such as weighted blankets, optic lamps, fidget spinners, and koosh balls. Thank you Charter House for your generous donation!
