Local Non-Profits Team up to Teach Safety Skills to Kids with Special Needs
MORIAH and Maricopa K9 Search & Rescue (http://www.maricopak9.com/)
"This one-of-a-kind program partners kids with special needs with typically developing children and the search and rescue canine teams for a fun afternoon of hide-and-seek in the desert," said Brett Bernstein, MORIAH's volunteer executive director. "The program is provided through the generosity of volunteers and donors."
