The HollyRod Foundation made a very generous donation of Puzzlepiece tablets and toys for CAR's waiting room, along with several copies of "My Brother Charlie", a book Holly co-wrote with her daughter to help children understand classmates and loved ones with ASD. The book was inspired by Holly's son, RJ (now 19 years old) who was diagnosed with ASD as a child.
Here are a few great shots from our visit!
