The next time you come in to eat or drink at Boundary Bay Brewery, check out the amazing quilt hanging on the wall of our Bistro. The quilt is being raffled off to support F.A.C.E.S. Northwest which provides a summer camp for children with autism.
A group of six families organized FACES (Families for Autistic Children’s Education and Support) in 1998 to provide critically needed special education and services for autistic children and their families. Without appropriate services, the tremendous stress of caring for a person with autism can force parents to seek alternative care for their autistic child. With appropriate services, autistic children can develop to their full potential and families can stay together.
FACES NW‘s main focus began as an eight-week summer program to ensure that these children could continue to practice and strengthen academic and social skills learned during a typical school year. The summer program is delivered in a classroom setting with structured individualized one-on-one teaching of appropriate skills. The children are then integrated into community settings with support to participate and reinforce their skills.
The quilt was made by Moonlight Quilters of Bellingham, WA and the quilting, itself, was done by Nikki Crisp. The drawing for the winner will be held August 20th.
