Congrats to Joining Hands!

Congratulations to Joining Hands

& Newton Special Athletes!

Joining Hands was recognized nationally by Newman’s Own Foundation for its work with the elderly and persons with disabilities.

As part of the Foundation’s third-annual Campus Community Service Challenge, Joining Hands participated on behalf of Newton Special Athletes for a Newman’s Own Foundation grant.

In a presentation earlier during the America East’s basketball championship in Hartford, CT, Newton Special Athletes was awarded $5,000.
