Land O'Lakes, Florida -- Longleaf Elementary School is hosting an Autism Awareness Walk to raise money for a sensory integration room.  

A multi-sensory room is a special room designed to develop a child’s sense, usually through special lighting, music, and objects. It will be used as a therapy for children with limited communication skills, behavioral issues, and sensory deficits in the school’s autism program, as well as for students who need a calm environment to de-stress.

The school is encouraging the local business community to help them reach the goal of raising $12,000. Several sponsorship levels are available including Presenting Sponsor ($1,000), Platinum Sponsor ($500), Gold Sponsor ($250), Silver Sponsor ($100) and Longleaf Friend of the Walk ($50).  Visit the school’s website (http://lles.pasco.k12.fl.us/) for details.  

There will be bouncy houses, slides, and plenty of games.  Longleaf Elementary School is located at 3253 Town Ave., New Port Richey.  For more information call 727-774-0800.

The New River Elementary School is also hosting an Autism Awareness Walk fundraiser to help purchase equipment and supplies for students with autism. The fundraising walk is open to the public.  

The school is distributing promotional flyers with a list sponsors, special guests, event information, and pre-registration forms to local schools, newspapers, and businesses.  Every sponsor who donates $150 or more will be listed on the event website, the t-shirt, and on materials sent to local media outlets.  Sponsors will be able to display promotional materials during the walk.  

New River Elementary School is located at 4710 River Glen Blvd., Wesley Chapel.  For information about becoming a sponsor contact Jon Leidy at 813-346-0500.
