Joining Hands for Autism Goes Virtual
The annual Joining Hands for Autism Awareness event will be virtual this year, due to the pandemic. The COVID virus will not will rain on the parade and silence the call to members of our community to get involved. The 11th annual event will take place April 17 at 9:00am, hosted by Townsquare Media's own Mike Soileau. The year's event is sponsored by Autism Services of SWLA, St. Nicholas Center for Children, and SWLA Autism Society. Show your support and get your Autism awareness t-shirt now, the deadline is today.
St. Nicholas Center for Children Development Director Brittany Schwem tells KPLC the goal is to raise awareness about the condition and for the amazing resources that are available.
