RUTH MORRIS: Students lending a hand again
March 21, 2013 11:00 AM

The students in several of IUP professor Linda Sullivan’s groups are once again promoting a fundraiser. This time they are sponsoring a brunch on behalf of Lifesteps’ autism project. In early November, one of her classes assisted Friends of Bill Shane and the Bridge Core for a dinner resulting in overwhelming success to benefit the Chevy Chase Community Center.

The brunch seeking to arouse community support and awareness of children’s autism will be held Sunday, April 7, at the Allenwood in Ackerman Hall on the IUP campus.

The brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (adults, $10, and children 3 to 11, $6) will benefit Lifesteps’ Child Check Program.

Child Check is a free developmental and autism screening service offered for children from birth to age 5. These screenings help identify problems that could interfere with a child’s normal growth.

We of the Bridge Core not only think that this Lifesteps’ program deserves community support but also believe that the IUP students’ involvement in another community fundraiser should be recognized, applauded and supported.
