This Holiday Season One Financial Services participated in Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21's Adopt-A-Family gift-giving program.
Carbon-Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 provides special education services to children from age 3 to 21 in Lehigh and Carbon counties. Some of the services they provide include occupational, physical, vision, and speech therapy as well as vocational training, audiology, and psychiatric services. The mission of the IU #21 is simply "to help children learn.”
Through the program, families, businesses, and organizations adopt students and their families and fulfill their holiday wishes by providing them with gifts of clothes, toys, and other items. A wish list was supplied by IU #21 and One Financial Services employees purchased items from the list. Gift requests ranged from clothing to household items.
The student adopted by One Financial Services this year is in a Multiple Disabilities Classroom at IU #21. The students in these particular classrooms have more than one challenge that are often medically involved. The focus in these classrooms is to provide opportunities for students to maximize their potential, develop communication strategies, and develop vocation skills if applicable.
The Team at One Financial Services had the opportunity to meet the Mother of the adopted Student when she stopped by the office to pick up the gifts.
One Financial Services is thankful to be able to participate in such a wonderful program that helps bring joy to others during the Holiday Season.
