The iPad will also have a protective case as well.

The deadline for the application to be turned in is December 9th by 5:00p. Winners will be announced December 12th! Click here for required application.

Happy Holidays from AFN.


*** Helping Hands 3rd Annual Holiday Drive***

Over the last two years Helping Hands has matched funds for families needing home repairs and donated gifts for children at the Christian Heritage Children's Home. This year Helping Hands is extending a helping hand to families that have children that could benefit from the use of a computer tablet but cannot afford one. With your help, Service Call will match up to $2,000 in donations for families with children on the autism spectrum to receive these tablets. Click here for information on how to donate.



Thank You for joining us for the FOREMAN FOUNDATION AUTISM FAMILY NETWORK GOLF TOURNAMENT at HiMark in September 2016!
