The Bethel Bowl to Benefit the Victory Mission & the Truman Elementary Special Needs Program - Jan 18th, 2013
The Bethel Bowl will be a charity event held at Bethel Assembly of God. Our goal is to gather food for the Victory Mission's food bank and to raise money for the Truman Elementary Special Needs Program. I asked Pastor Nick to provide some in site in to what exactly the funds will be going toward.
We are looking to raise money for a very worthy cause. With autism and the wide spectrum of special needs that these words now cover is growing epidemic and with more funds being taken away from this group of people they need our help. We are looking to raise $1,900 to purchase computer tablets for special needs children in the Truman Elementary school. With this money we hope to purchase 3 tablets per classroom which would be 3 classrooms. Tablets are great tools for children with special needs because they open a door to the mind and enable them to communicate through this tool in a way they couldn't before. These children are trapped in their minds and unable to communicate what they need or what they are feeling. Can you imagine being locked in your mind without being able to express yourself. Some of these kids are super intelligent but are unable to share what they have because it is all locked up. We want to give them a key to open a new world of possibilities for them and their families. I want to take a moment to thank Russ for his help in putting this event together and look forward to the possibility of creating a permanent course on the church property at Bethel Assembly. All you die hard disc golfers know we need another course or two or three or....... help make all this happen. Thanks and God Bless, Pastor Nick DeRosa
We hope to see as many of you on this temp course that may become permanent one day!
