How did DSAOC kick-off Down Syndrome Awareness month?

DSAOC works hard on initiatives promoting Down syndrome awareness, throughout Orange County and beyond.  We ask our community to support our families and our loved ones with Down syndrome, and many of our families benefit from community programs and services.

To give back to our community, and to show people that individuals with Down syndrome care about the environment and nature, DSAOC coordinated a Beach Clean-Up activity for our teens and adults with Down syndrome.

On Saturday, October 1, some DSAOC families met up with the Surfrider Foundation at Newport Beach to learn about the importance of keeping our communities litter free, and how so much trash ends up on the beach after storms.  Besides being very educational, it felt good to be out in nature on such a beautiful day, doing something good.

You can check out more photos from this activity by visiting the photo album on DSAOC’s Facebook page.

A BIG THANKS to all families who participated, and to our wonderful volunteers, Laurie and Abraham.
