Free Items for Children with Special Needs
Here are some Resources for Special Needs Kids. There are many more listed on Meriah Nichols Website. If you have participated or know of any other resources, please drop me a comment below so I can add it!
Ones We Have Participated In
Songs of Love Foundation this one was AMAZING, and they are so wonderful!
Weighted Blankets, Lap Pads, and Fidgets go above and beyond to accommodate you. We did give them a small donation because they made four blankets, six-lap pads, and several fidgets. Again, above and beyond.
Make a Wish, and if you go through MAW, you can also receive a scrapbook from Crops of Luv. Wow. MAW provided something I never thought I would be able to do. Not only did they take my HUGE family, but they added in H’s biological brother and sister. Also, my sister and brother-in-law raise those kids. In total, 13 people were going without a blink of an eye! Crops of Luv, words cannot express my son’s joy at seeing your creativity with his Disney scrapbook.
Rare Bear Program. Such a cool thing. They ask what your child likes and try to create a bear with that fabric. It is very well made and very well-loved.
Free Cake from Icing Smiles. We have just applied to this, so I will keep you posted.
National Park Pass includes anyone in the vehicle with your child. The child HAS to be in the car. We have used this quite a bit, and it is a lifesaver.
Ones We have Not Yet Applied For
Bikes: here’s a comprehensive list from the Friendship Circle’s blog of places to turn to for an adaptive cycle. (note: scroll down – the formatting of their post is a little different, and it threw me off for a minute).
Angel Flight: free air transportation for any legitimate, charitable, medically related need.
