A program that provides transportation for adults and children with developmental disabilities just got a big boost.
On Tuesday, the Larry H. Miller Charities presented the Resource Exchange’s ‘Go Baby Go’ program with a donation of $10,000.
The program will use the money to customize tiny cars that are built for kids with down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy. The organization said these cars help the kids gain independence and confidence.
”You put these kids in these cars, once they’re done and developed, and you introduce them to the accelerator, and they just…it’s magic," said David Ervin of Resource Exchange. "They’re able to interact with their environment where, without these cars it wouldn’t be possible.”
Each year, Larry H. Miller Charities donates to five charities of the employees choosing. The Resource Exchange has helped almost 5,000 people in the Colorado Springs area.
