Shopping Carts helping the Hurricane…

I received a text from a friend and we have lots in common because we both have boys with autism.  So, yes we can relate on so many topics!  He shared his story of how his son worked hard during the hurricane doing the job that most would snub their noses to- collecting shopping carts and making them available for the…
