Our 3 Angels - which is a non-profit founded in memory of Amber Polasek, Brandon Schulze and another close friend – recently made a $2000 donation to Turtle Wing Foundation. Their fundraising events allow the non-profit to provide help for those in need and help support a brighter future for the youth of our community. One of the founding members, Carol Polasek, has a great nephew who has autism and participates in Turtle Wing Foundation activities. That is one of the reasons they selected Turtle Wing, believing in their mission to “help children in rural areas with learning challenges achieve their full potential”. Additionally, Annette Jasek was a bus driver for many years and became acquainted with some of the young adults participating in the new Aged Out Programming being offered by And Then A New Day and being underwritten by Turtle Wing. $1,000 was specified to be used for Turtle Wing scholarships for Supplemental Services and the other $1,000 was specified to help with the Aged Out programming. Turtle Wing Foundation helps provide Early Intervention, Supplemental Services and Community Education & Advocacy programming to children and families from Colorado, Fayette, Lavaca and surrounding counties with academic, social-emotional, behavioral and/or developmental needs.
