Students, teachers to Blow Bubbles 4 Autism

Students from the Charles L. Spragg School in Egg Harbor City will join their peers across the state for Blowing Bubbles 4 Autism on April 22. This event will help the FACES 4 Autism organization make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for the most people blowing bubbles for a minute.

FACES 4 Autism is a nonprofit group that provides autism education and support including behavior therapy, sensory therapy, special education and more in New Jersey. Bubbles were chosen because bubbles are symbols of joy, hope and laughter, and they bring people together.

On April 22, Spragg School teachers, students and parents will gather on the school playground and blowing bubbles to raise awareness.
