HASCI Team Supporting our Community, December 5, 2018
The Head and Spinal Cord Injury group recently contributed to the Salvation Army and were highlighted in a news clip on Fox Carolina. Click here: FOX NEWS CLIP   Our own Emory McDaniel is interviewed and does a great job! This is a wonderful example of individuals with disabilities not only relying on the community for support, but actively giving back to the community of Greenville. The “Let’s Talk” self-advocacy group has been collecting food for the food bank all month as well. We will do more and more of these activities going forward. We will be the change we expect to see in others.
