AEIOU Thanks Hills Holdings & Employees for Generous Donation
8th August 2012
Orrcon Steel recently had the pleasure of presenting $24,500 to the AEIOU Foundation on behalf of the Hills Holdings Group.
The AEIOU Foundation provides Queensland’s only fulltime early education program for children between the ages of 2-1/2 and 5 years with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Alan Smith, CEO of the foundation, expressed his thanks of the much-needed support. “We are delighted and grateful for this incredible support for our service and families. The donation of $24,500 will go towards play items for AEIOU’s centres throughout Queensland,” commented Mr Smith.
“These items ensure a wide variety of gross motor skills activities are available for the children, complementing other vital learning goals of the AEIOU program. Thank you to Hills Holdings and those employees who contribute to the Charity Support Scheme for this generous donation.”
AEIOU supports over 200 children throughout centres across Queensland. Around 75% of all children who complete the program transition to mainstream education. For more information on AEIOU visit http://aeiou.org.au/
