Autism kids club assemble kits for homeless




Ellsworth Springs — Autism Serves Kids Care Club put together wellness kits for homeless Clark County veterans for a third year recently. The club is a program of local nonprofit Autism Empowerment, where youth who are on the autism spectrum learn the importance of service learning and giving back to the community. Led by founders Karen and John Krejcha, the club is open to children on the autism spectrum of all abilities between ages 5 and 14. The kits assembled by the youngsters — which contained gloves, hats and personal care items — were put together in partnership with the Clark County Veterans Assistance Center, which will distribute the kits to local veterans who are in need of a helping hand.
