Help Children in Need with The Bacchus Foundation

Posted on September 30th, 2014 by

There is plenty of love in our community, and the Love Fund for Children is proud to be celebrating our 32nd year of sharing this love, care, and support with children throughout the Kansas City area.

While we’d like to take credit for our efforts, the truth is that we’re not the only organization in town doing some amazing things to make our community strong and vibrant.

To that end, we are honored to announce our charity partnership in Kansas City with the Bacchus Foundation. This partnership will enhance our shared efforts and ensure that we can help even more children.

Together, we have applied for a grant to supply iPads to children living with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, and other physical limitations that make learning difficult.

These iPads will be loaded with educational tools from AssistiveWare. Via programs and apps such as ProLoquo2Go, these tools help make communication easier and learning accessible and fun, thus removing many of the barriers physical disabilities can create.

For instance, we recently provided an iPad to a visually impaired child with issues communicating. The iPad was equipped with a mounting arm attached to the wheelchair, a sound system, Bluetooth switch, and many other features that removed many obstacles.

There are plenty of ways that you can participate in this charity partnership in Kansas City. We invite you to contact Love Fund for Children to learn how you can get involved and join in our efforts.

You can also contact Bacchus Foundation for more information and to discover more about the amazing technologies we are working to make available to some of the special angels in our community who need your help.
