JJ's Tropical Troop

John & Jen Howlett

Hello to all our wonderful friends & family! As you all are aware, this year certainly has not gone the way we anticipated. Most of you know of the group POAC (Parent's Of Autistic Children), that we've grown to love & support over the years. POAC has been a part of our lives since JJ's Autism diagnosis over 6 years ago and our team - JJ's Tropical Troop has participated and raised money thanks to many of our fantastic friends, businesses & family members. This non-profit group earns most of it's funding (around 85%) for the year through their annual walk-a-thons held in the Spring. As a result of Covid-19 & mandatory quarantines, all of these fundraisers were cancelled.

Luckily, as some of the restrictions have been lifted, POAC is able to host a Virtual Walk-a-thon on July 19th! We know how important it is that this group, & the hundreds of training, educational & recreational programs that they host throughout the year continue to exist. If you are in the fortunate position that you can give, we ask that you consider donating to POAC. No amount is too small & we can tell you from personal experience that it does make a difference!

We thank & love all of you & appreciate your continued support!
John, Jen, Makenzie & JJ
