Community and University Make Holiday Merrier for Child with Special Needs
December 25, 2007
December 25, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - The generosity of some local workers -- with an assist from DePauw University -- have made it a merrier holiday for an 11-year-old child with special needs. Greencastle's Banner-Graphic tells of the gifts Colton Adams unwrapped. "Among Colton's stack of electronic music toys, he also received a touch-screen computer monitor. Paired with a computer donated and configured by DePauw University, Colton will be able to learn technology and hopefully communicate with his family and teachers," writes Michael Zennie.
Employees of Buzzi Unicem, Buzzi Alternative Fuels and the Boilermakers Union Local D39 made joined forces "and adopted two families with special needs children for Christmas," adds the article. "In all, the Buzzi employees were able to pull together about $2,300 -- enough for gifts for the two families and a donation to the Putnam County Senior Center."
