We love working the ASL Summer Program. Every summer we set up a weeks’ worth of events, presentations, crafts and healthy snacks for our parents to participate in with their children. In past years, we have gone to the Fresno Zoo, Round Table Pizza, The Discovery Center, Whitie’s Pet Store, Savemart, Color Me Mine, Fossil Discover Center, and movies. We also have had Pampered Chef present on healthy snacks every summer, and this recent summer we got to mine for gold, make candles and weave a basket, right here at DHHSC.
Each of our events has a fee involved, so we have had grants and fundraisers to help makes these events free for the last two years. Our fundraisers have been selling delicious World’s Finest candy bars and host movie nights at DHHSC. Our most recent movie night featured the movie Polar Express. For fundraising, we sold hot cocoas and lots of yummy candies and popcorn.
Our next movie night will be Feb 6, 2016 at 5pm at DHHSC in Fresno and we will have popcorn, cocoas, candies and soda for purchase to continue to raise funds for the ASL Summer Program 2016. We will have monthly movie nights, so watch for those to be announced. We hope to provide this fun program free of charge again.
Thank you for all of your support of the ASL Summer Program. We love meeting and having fun with our families.
