Here’s a heartwarming story that took place right here in our community. Last Monday, the Owensboro Fire Department allowed two of GRADSA’s (Green River Area Down syndrome Association) adults to job shadow Richard Peach, a fire fighter.
They got to do the job of a fireman. They filed certificates, washed the fire trucks, toured the department, & rode around Owensboro in the fire truck!
GRADSA will be doing a volunteer day each month at a different location to get the adults out in the community and to raise awareness about Down syndrome.
GRADSA serves more than 150 families in the Green River Area, more than 9 counties.
