We are writing to express our gratitude for the generous donation to the Expressions of Color Autism Resource Center.
Due to the fact that the ECARC has closed, we have collectively decided to donate the funds raised for the Snowball Dance to the Marshall University Autism Training Center. The funds will be used to purchase iPads for classrooms in Randolph County Schools that have students on the autism spectrum.
The Autism Training Center at Marshall University is a reputable, credible resource to families that have loved ones on the spectrum of autism. They provide direct services through trained education specialists that come into the home and school to work with the child's family members and teachers. They also have an extensive lending library available to the families. Additionally, it has been nationally recognized for its Autism Research and College Program for students on the Autism Spectrum.
If you would like to donate to the Autism Training Center, you can make out the check to and send it directly to: Marshall University Foundation/Autism, 1 John Marshall Drive, Huntington, WV 25755. In the note section, write "iPads for Randolph County Autism Classrooms."
