DSAOC was thrilled to recently receive a grant through the Cox Cares community giving program, thanks to a Cox employee who has a child with Down syndrome and knows first hand how important DSAOC’s mission is.
The Cox Cares Foundation, a fund of OneOC, is funded by employee payroll donations that are matched 100 percent by Cox Communications. Jason Haywood, who has a young son with Down syndrome, nominated DSAOC to receive a portion of the grant funds.
After receiving the funds, DSAOC was also invited to appear on the Cox Community Forum (channel 3 for Cox subscribers) to talk about Down Syndrome Awareness Month and the Orange County Buddy Walk.
DSAOC appointed Ruben Rivas (DSAOC Board Member) and Jacob Braun (Self-Advocate) to be our representatives. Besides having a great time meeting the hospitable team at Cox, Ruben and Jacob did a wonderful job representing DSAOC and our Down syndrome community.
