Andrew Randall of Seekonk honored as Community Autism Resources 2018 Volunteer of the Year
Congratulations to Seekonk Resident Andrew Randall. On Saturday September 22nd Andrew was honored as Community Autism Resources 2018 Volunteer of the Year at the agency’s annual Hearts & Hands Walk and 5K Run for Autism.
Andrew is an adult with Autism who has been volunteering at Community Autism Resources for over five and a half years. His hope is to one day be given the opportunity to have a paid position that uses his strength and skills.
As Barbara Domingue, the Executive Director of Community Autism Resources presented the award to Andrew, this is some of what she had to say: “Andrew has volunteered faithfully at Community Autism Resources over the last five and half years. His mom Jan tells us that “he likes to be busy” and he certainly is; when he comes to the office he immediately starts to work and does any task given to him so very well. He fills a number of roles – from shredding documents, to emptying our trash and he has done numerous other jobs around the office. He is currently learning how to put together the information packets on Autism Spectrum Disorder that we send to families. We are really fortunate to have Andrew assisting us and we appreciate that he generously gives of his time to help us.”
For his award, Andrew was excited to receive the shirt pictured and a gift card to one of his favorite places, Seekonk Grand Prix.
