The Bubel/Aiken Foundation awarded $15,000 to introduce Let’s All Play, a recreational after-school program to a wonderful organization called Special Kids Crusade.
Special Kids Crusade is a private, parent-founded organization that is dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of developmentally disabled children and their families. They are headquartered in Monterey, County, CA.
The grant from the Bubel/Aiken Foundation will help the Special Kids Crusade partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Monterey County to build a positive program that will allow children with disabilities to enjoy a social recreational experience in an inclusive setting.
Besides the Let’s All Play program, Special Kids Crusade has many exciting programs for their group. They host Mom’s Night Out on Saturdays, and have a VIP Basketball program so that all kids have the opportunity to learn basketball basics. They also publish a Family Resource Directory which was created to help families identify regional advocacy, legal services and other supportive services in Monterey County.
The Bubel/Aiken Foundation, established by Clay Aiken and Diane Bubel, has been developing it Let’s All Play Program since 2004. Today, it supports 29 programs across the country.
Congratulations to both The Bubel/Aiken Foundation and Special Kids Crusade. Thank you for all you do to support children with developmental disabilities.
