SEF was asked if there was a way that we can arrange to have children with special needs or sensory concerns that can not be in crowded/loud places to pick up a backpack at a different time, perhaps a different day afterwards or an hour or so before the general public.
They went on to explain that in their group they have many families that unfortunately have not been able to participate in previous local backpack events because of reasons related to their children's disability and hate to see them miss out again.
If you know us, you know that we won’t agree to do a special time before or after the event. Or set a day so they can get a backpack. Because I don’t believe it’s fair for the children.
So, we declined instead... we hosted their very own event with their needs in mind.
This year, 2019, SEF partnered with AV Seed and Grow to bring to life our very first OH YEAH! Back To School Party.
This back to school party is for families with children with Special Needs in the Antelope Valley. The Children's disabilities vary from "High-Functioning" Autism, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, to name a few.
Oh Yeah! B2S Party is an event that will have their needs in mind, no loud music, no big crowds, no balloons but with everything that makes an event a party.
t’s all about being included. It’s all about having their needs in mind. It’s all about caring.
With the help of
The 2019 OH YEAH! Party was made possible!
