Donation of Tablets For Local Schools
Recently, through Autism Canada, Samsung, and the Look at Me Project, we acquired five tablets that we have been lending to schools in Charlotte County. Some of our schools are in dire need of tablets to help our special needs children. If you can donate a gently used tablet to your local school or would like to donate them to us, we will make sure they will go where needed.
How will you be Recognized for your Support?

It may include company recognition on our homepage, Event and Sponsor Recognition Page, conference materials, brochures, marketing and program materials.
