Holiday event for children and adults with disabilities Dec. 15 at IBEW union hall

Dec. 7, 2018
       A “holiday party” will distribute presents to children and adults with disabilities Saturday, Dec. 15 at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) local union #113 building, 2150 Naegle Road.
       Those being gifted are those who attend Special Kids Special Families (SKSF) programs.
       “Every year, SKSF throws a holiday party to over 300 program participants, their siblings and their families, celebrating them by passing out gifts, participating in fun craft projects and sharing in a potluck lunch,” a press release states. “This annual tradition wouldn't be possible without the help and support of area Colorado Springs businesses and generous donors.”
       The release lists those entities as NuStar Energy, IBEW, Koscove Metal, Progressive Insurance, Warren Management Group, Berwick Electric, Harding Nursery, RPS Healthcare and CB Insurance.
       Contributions include purchasing and wrapping gifts for children with physical, emotional and intellectual disabilities from Zach's Place, adults with disabilities who participate in adult service programs and children in foster care placements through SKSF.
       For more information, go to the website at SKSFcolorado.org.
