Salisbury Jaycees host adaptive Easter egg hunt for children with impairments
Easter is quickly approaching — and it seems there's only one thing on many kids minds nowadays–Easter egg hunts. But that's not always the case for kids with disabilities. That's why on Saturday, The Salisbury Jaycees held an adaptive Easter egg hunt for children dealing with visual impairment, wheelchair mobility, or autism. The event included an egg hunt that was tailored to children's needs, games, face painting, and a visit from the Easter Bunny.
"The reality is a lot of these kids that have impairments aren't able to participate in some of the other egg hunts going on in town so we really worked hard to tailor it to those types of children so that they could participate today," said Program Chair Shannon Vaughn.
This was the first adaptive egg hunt the Jaycees held for children with impairments and they hope to make this an annual event.
