Some of this equipment can be quite cost-prohibitive. Capable Kids and Families allows parents to check out items free of charge and keep them as long as they are needed.
Charlie will conduct a live auction during his show with a new item every day for ten days. The auction starts Monday, November 1st and all proceeds will benefit St. Louis Arc’s Capable Kids and Families program.
