On January 7, Ed Cyr of Evergreens for Autism presented proceeds totaling $1,900 from sales of Christmas trees and wreaths at their Kingston, NH and Seabrook, NH outlets. Evergreens for Autism is an annual program that happens around the holiday season, started by the Cyr family, to support Crotched Mountain’s Ready Set Connect autism centers.
All the proceeds from wreath sales, and partial proceeds of all tree sales, are donated to Ready Set Connect, which operates treatment centers in Concord, Manchester, and Greenfield NH. Ready Set Connect provides one-on-one Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to young children with autism in a group setting, as well as parent training. The program is geared towards helping children build skills for success in school and at home.
“I have two children diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism, and nine years ago I decided to do what I can to help a cause that is obviously near and dear to my heart,” said Ed Cyr.
Ed Cyr presents Kevin Harte, VP of Advancement for Crotched Mountain, with a check for $1,900.
