BUDS Cooking Class Raises Money for Red Cross
BUDS Cooking Class Raises Money for Red Cross

Hello! I am the coordinator for the cooking class through our local support group, Bringing Up Down Syndrome (BUDS). We have 10 young adults with Down syndrome who participate in a cooking class twice a month to develop independent cooking skills as well as to learn about proper nutrition and how to keep our bodies healthy. In light of the devastation in Oklahoma by the recent tornados, our BUDS cooking class put together a bake sale to raise money for the Red Cross. Our young adults baked goodies for the sale. They did a great job! The day of the sale we had five young adults come out to work. Together they were able to raise $700 to send to the Red Cross to benefit the victims of the Oklahoma tornado. I am so proud of the way they were able to speak to people about their cause, showing dedication and determination!
