It can happen to anyone!
It is tough having a child with autism. If you also have financial difficulties during the holidays it can be truly overwhelming.
Your child with autism does not understand. And there is no way to explain it to him or her. It’s even worse if there are siblings who are overwhelmingly disappointed too.
This tips your family over the edge.
ARRO Holiday Assistance Project.
All donations are gratefully accepted no matter what the amount is.
ARRO established this fund in 2007 to assist our families during the holidays.
Last year we assisted two families with rent and utilities bills, and gave 43 Multnomah County families $100 Holiday Gift Cards from retailers such as Fred Meyer, Target and New Seasons Market. This year we would like to assist more families.
Families nominated in November by an Oregon autism nonprofit will be considered to receive assistance from this program by December 15th.
Assistance choices will be family driven. The amount of assistance given will depend on the amount of funding raised.
Families who need help should contact an Oregon autism nonprofit organization such as ARRO or the Autism Society of Oregon.
Our families need your help! Please donate today so that we can make their holiday brighter!
