LIMA – Betty’s Farm will be hosting a volunteer day on Saturday, April 23rd to celebrate Autism Awareness Month. The United States recognizes April as the month to educate the public and highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the incidence of autism in children is 1 in 68.
The Volunteer Day at Betty’s Farm will provide an opportunity for the local community to give back and help promote autism awareness, acceptance, appreciation and inclusion, and to draw attention to the thousands of individuals diagnosed with autism each year.
Shannon Solt who oversees the volunteer program at Bittersweet says, “Volunteers are an essential part of the community and especially important to Betty’s Farm. Volunteers bring new ideas and skills that enhance the program at Betty’s Farm. The staff and participants at Betty’s Farm work hard each year to develop a safe and inspiring environment where local volunteers can grow, learn, and safely give back to the community.”
No experience is needed for those who wish to volunteer. Volunteer work will be outdoors, rain or shine. To find out more information about the volunteer day at Betty’s Farm, contact Natalie Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419 999 9174.
