Atlantic City School Students 'Blow Bubbles for Autism'Last Edited:
The skies of Atlantic City were filled with bubbles all for a good cause.
On Wednesday, April 11th, students at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School Complex along with members of the organization Connecting the Dots, grabbed their bubble wands and gathered outside the school building to blow bubbles for autism.
This bubbly event is held each year during Autism Awareness Month to help raise awareness about the disability.
Officials say the event is one of the many ways they're educating their school community about autism and helping to spread a message of hope to those who are impacted by it.
"Autism Day is a great day for Atlantic City because ... the more we make people aware of how special autistic kids are and how they are a great piece of our community, the better off the world will be," said Frank Gilliam, mayor of Atlantic City.
Connecting the Dots also held a classroom autism door decorating contest for all of the Atlantic City school district.
The winning classrooms from each school will be selected on Tuesday, April 17th, and will get to celebrate with a pizza party.
