Turbie Twist Gives $8,000 to the Children's Institute of Pittsburgh
Turbie Twist, LLC has donated $8,000 to the Children's Institute of Pittsburgh to support their disability awareness programs in Western Pennsylvania.
"Turbie Twist is really excited about supporting the Children's Institute," said Christina Cummings, Turbie Twist, LLC President. "Outreach programs like the ones offered by Children's Institute increase children's awareness and understanding of their peers with disabilities."
The Children's Institute estimates that the donation by Turbie Twist will allow between 3600-3800 children in elementary and middle schools to experience the Kids on the Block program or Amazing Kids workshop awareness program.
The Kids on the block program for elementary school students is an informative show that features puppets with various disabilities that perform skits designed to increase awareness and understanding of children with disabilities.
The Amazing Kids workshop allows middle school students the opportunity to take part in a series of interactive activities to help them understand how challenging a disability can be. The students also meet several middle school students, via video, who describe a problem they faced at school because of their disability.
