In November of every year, the American Autism Association (AAA) teams up with community partners to host a Toy Drive for the individuals and families affected by autism in their local communities of New York and Miami. This year, AAA worked with Barry University, Miami Beach Community Church, Adelphi University, and St. John’s University to collect a incredible 400 gifts.
On December 10, 2016 in Miami, and December 11, 2016 in New York, our teams welcomed families to autism friendly holiday parties. Each one unique in their own way, providing families with delicious treats, activities, and performances. AAA strove to make these parties a welcoming environment for families affected by autism, creating an affirming, accepting, and most importantly FUN experience for all.
We are happy to announce that both parties were extremely successful, hosting over 100 families each! There was dancing, coloring, singing, and much more. Check out some of our favorite photos below.
