Raising Money Helps Kids with Autism get the Education they Deserve

Throughout the year STLR gives students the opportunity to experience a variety of community experiences. Some of the activities are shopping, bowling, horseback riding and many other outings. These experiences are an important part of students’ education as it gives them an opportunity to generalize knowledge in a new environment and learn new community and social skills.

Grant money is no longer available that was once used to fund this type of education. 

                         How can you help?  

This year the mothers at the schools have teamed up with Bunch Bags to raise money for the STLR program for students with Autism. They are fundraising to help with the costs of these community outings and activities, as well as to purchase materials for the classrooms. Bunch Bags are reusable eco-friendly produce bags.

You can bring these bags to the grocery store or farmer’s market as an alternative to plastic produce bags. The vegetables can be washed and stored inside of the breathable Bunch Bags. When it’s time for a refresher, just throw your Bunch Bags in the washing machine! These make great gifts and stocking stuffers for your eco-conscious loved ones and veggie lovers!

The bags are sold as bunches of 3 for $6.50. Our STLR program profits $3 from each sale! We will be taking orders for Bunch Bags from September 19 until October 7. Bunch Bags make great gifts and stocking stuffers for your eco-conscious loved ones and veggie lovers!

Orders will be delivered/shippped to any of you who order with great appreciation because your interest means very much to me and my family including my extended family of teachers and aides that help these kids, our kids.

Call, mail or email Kirsten Kelly with your order 
Checks can be written to KLH or (Kenneth L Hermansen School)
and mailed to c/o On Doody PO Box 433 Lockport, IL 60441
