The weather was quite chilly, but the atmosphere was fun and welcoming when Jenna Wible, Grappone Ford/Mazda Parts Warehouse Representative, arrived at the Autism Speaks Northern New England 13th annual Walk on Sunday, September 20th. Jenna signed in and headed over to the Children’s Activity Area to set up and decorate the tent. She spent most of her time helping the children with coloring, making bookmarks and Halloween pictures. Each child got a sticker once they completed a craft which they could trade in for a prize. She also spent some time at the bounce house; when the children were finished bouncing she gave them each a lollipop. Families from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont gathered on the campus of Southern New Hampshire University to support Autism Speaks’ mission to fund research and increase awareness to advocate for individuals with autism and their families. Special guests included: the UNH Men’s basketball team, WLNH 98.3 DJ “Mya,” and representatives from the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon. Jenna was proud to be a part of this event, and at the end of her day of volunteering she presented Autism Speaks with a $250 donation from Grappone in the Community, made on her behalf.
