CANDLES FOR A CAUSE
Candles for a Cause is an organization with hopes of enriching life-skills for students with disabilities, while encouraging cooperation with other of different abilities.
Mission Statement: Enriching students in our community with real life, hands- on learning experiences for students across the board.
Vision statement: we want to see younger kids get involved in their community from a young age, while using their motor skills in community-based activities.
Candles for a Cause hosts monthly workshops, in which students, families, and friends are invited to attend a session to manufacture candles. All the money goes back into the program, making it a sustainable activity for children of different abilities.
Candles for a Cause was founded by the Kommineni siblings. Both passionate about disability awareness, the two founded the organization in 2022 with the support of their community.
